Academic Videos concerning the History of Icelandic Magic Staves

 Hello friends,

I know I haven't been to this blog for a very long time, as I have been focused on other platforms such as Patreon and Youtube, but also in my day-time job as an Archaeologist.

Many things I wrote in this blog I've been revising for the past 5 years at YouTube. New research and evidences are always popping out, so it's always important to have our knowledge updated. This also concerns posts I've written in the past in relation to the galdrastafir (Icelandic Magic Staves).

I thought it would be useful to add here the YouTube videos I've done concerning Icelandic Magic Staves (galdrastafir) to help people research about the history of such symbols, as there's plenty of pseudo-historians and modern merchandise dealing with "Viking Religious Symbols" which does not portray the actual historical evidences and scientific knowledge concerning the history and archaeology of Nordic History.

The videos I will share here are my own academic works, and you can find bibliography at the end of those videos, so you can check for yourself. I hope it is useful. Thank you.

Galdrastafir : Common Misconceptions:

Similarities Between Umbanda Symbols and Icelandic Magic Staves:

The True Ægishjálmur [Helm of Awe] :

The Real Meaning of the Vegvísir :

I very much hope you enjoy these videos and may they be useful.

Rune Divination Methods: The Three Norns Method

Since I've started a YouTube Channel I have progressively put aside my past blogs. But today I would like to share with you my first video concerning a Rune Divination Method; turning into video format past blog-posts concerning the runes and divination-methods associated to them. Hope you enjoy it!

The Runes: Dagaz


It has recently come to my attention that in this old blog I've never actually spoke about Dagaz; for some reason this rune escaped my earlier writings concerning the runes, rune-readings and divination with the runes. Three years agora I've started to make new rune-series at Youtube and finally, on December 2020, I close those rune series too, with Dagaz. So I'll leave it right here since it is a missing piece. Thank you.

FAQ (in video format)


Hello everyone, it's been a while since I've made any post in this blog. The truth is that I have completely abandoned it when I joined the YouTube Platform and also Patreon (the latter is where I submit my academic works).

In the past 4 years (when I became a YouTuber) there's been many questions, but I've noticed some general doubts follow the same type of questions on specific subjects. So I've decided to put some links to my YouTube Videos where I've already answered Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ). I hope you will find this post useful and you may also join me at YouTube and Patreon.

What is Animism?

I know I've abandoned this blog some time ago, but most of you are now with me at my Youtube Channel, or continued to support me on the Patreon platform. Even so, if any one still comes here, or by chance comes across this blog seeking something concerning paganism, and you don't yet know about my work, I leave this video here because I think it might contain useful information for those stepping into paganism and want to understand the essence of it, the way of thinking.

I think this video contains some useful information to understand the basics of paganism. It seems to me, nowadays, most neo-pagan movements and neo-pagan thinking is simply an extent of monotheistic world-denying views; there's still the tendency to follow the same line of thought. Neo-paganism in great part seems like a "paganization" of Near-Eastern monotheisms - worshiping the gods as if they were our personal servents and we make demands from, and there is still a great spiritual detachment from our reality and people still seek a spiritual-realm elsews.ewhere, as I often hear: "Middle-Earth is not for me! Valhalla awaits me!". I think by understanding Animism we can better grasp part of the pagan consciousness, and it is a way to start gaining world-accepting views.

VIKINGS: Björn Ironside Facial Tattoo Meaning

As you know, I'm no longer here on this blog due to lack of time for some writing; as an archaeologist that profession takes much of my time, but you can still find my work and my posts in a variety of other social media that I shall leave the links in this post.

My good friends, I've made a post on my Patreon about the meaning of Björn's facial tattoo on the TV series VIKINGS. I'll leave the link down below to that post because it's open to the public:

Will You be my Patron?

Now is the chance for you to become my Patron!

If you wish to directly help me in appreciation for the work I do on My Youtube Channel , now you can become my Patron and send me whatever amount you want so I can continue to provide content. Let’s face it, being an Archaeologist doesn’t pay the bills at all, unfortunately, and I’m currently working as a independent researcher, which means I earn absolutely nothing;  I actually spend my own to be an archaeologist and provide history to the public.

So just go to My Patron , and support me my dear friend. Thank you in advance. Being my Patron also means you will have access to exclusive content.

Best Regards
