CULT OR CUISINE? BIRDS IN MEDIEVAL SCANDINAVIA AND ICELAND

All day from Thursday 31 March until Sunday 10 April

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 26th March. For events on or after 27th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

A talk by Eric Ania Haley-Halinski from the Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic on how humans interacted with ravens and chickens in medieval Iceland and Scandinavia.

Eric Ania Haley-Halinski from the Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic will present some interesting findings from their research in the form of a short video presentation. While television, music, and other forms of media have drawn on the importance of ravens to the Vikings, the history of chickens in Scandinavia and Iceland is less well-known. Eric Ania will use mythological, literary, and archaeological sources to explore the different ways that humans interacted with chickens and ravens, and how two very different birds were both important in everything from religious beliefs to everyday life.

This talk will be available to view on the ASNC Department's YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClq9imzowZn4yms6PgxZTJA
