The Real Meaning of the Vegvísir
- Published on Jan 25, 2022
- You may have heard that the Vegvísir is a Viking symbol representing a compass, mapping the winds with ancient runic magic staves, and whatnot. Well, let us explore the real historical background of this symbol and find what it's all about.
At minute 05:37 I say a mistake, pointing that between the end of the Viking Period and the appearance of the first galdrastafir ("magic staves") "half a century" has passed. It's obviously "half a millennium" (500 years between the end of the Viking Period and the 16th century when the simpler and stylized galdrastafir appear for the first time). This is the second time I make this mistake. Starting to getting mad at myself. I'm tired and it is starting to show lol.
