Before we understand the religious practice of pre-Christian Nordic belief systems, especially of the Late Iron Age and the Early Middle Ages in Scandinavia (Viking Age) we have to understand what we truly know about this subject based on the sources of study at hand, as well as the surviving literary evidences, archaeological contexts as well as the romanticisms created around this historical period.
