This web page consists of the view of the universe of Vikings of Scandinavia. It was a mythological cosmology with gods, giants, dwarves, elves, monsters, and fairies. Much of their mythology reflected their warlike nature and their virtue to be honorable. They had a rather unique view on how the universe was created. They believed the world would come to a bloody, destructive end but also believed that it would regenerate into an even better world in which to live.
