520    Magic, sorcery and witchcraft are among the most common 
       themes of the great medieval Icelandic sagas and poems, 
       the problematic yet vital sources that provide our primary
       textual evidence for the Viking Age that they claim to 
       describe. Yet despite the consistency of this picture, 
       surprisingly little archaeological or historical research 
       has been done to explore what this may really have meant 
       to the men and women of the time. This book examines the 
       evidence for Old Norse sorcery, looking at its meaning and
       function, practice and practitioners, and the complicated 
       constructions of gender and sexual identity with which 
       these were underpinned. Combining strong elements of 
       eroticism and aggression, sorcery appears as a fundamental
       domain of women's power, linking them with the gods, the 
       dead and the future. Their battle spells and combat 
       rituals complement the men's physical acts of fighting, in
       a supernatural empowerment of the Viking way of life. What
       emerges is a fundamentally new image of the world in which
       the Vikings understood themselves to move, in which magic 
       and its implications permeated every aspect of a society 
       permanently geared for war. --|cProvided by publisher
