This research guide is designed to connect students to resources on Norse Mythology and Literature. It covers both mythology and literature because of the close connection between the two. Along with resources specifically on the myth and literature of the Norse world (Iceland, Denmark, Norway, and Sweden) it also covers Germanic and Anglo-Saxon mythology and literature because the cultures of these peoples shared much with the Norse.
