Never be lost for words again…With this book of lost words.

Have you ever wanted to wield the silver tongue of Loki – or to hammer home your point like a Thundergod?

Old Norse is the language of legends and the stuff of sagas, the inspiration for Tolkien and Marvel, for award-winning manga and epic videogames. It is the language of cleverly crafted kennings, blood-curdling curses and pithy retorts to Ragnarök.

Old Norse for Modern Times gives you the perfect phrase for every contemporary situation –

  • Memorable Movie Quotes
    • “We’re going to need a bigger boat.”
    • Þurta munu vér skip stærra
  • Battle-Cries to yell on Discord
    • “Do I look to be in a gaming mood?”
    • Sýniskþér ek vera ískapi til leika?
  • Mead Hall Musings
    • “This drink, I like it! ANOTHER!”
    • Líkar mér drykkr þessi! ANNAN!
  • Tried-and-Tested Pickup Lines
    • “Nice Tattoo!”
    • Fagrt er húðflúrið!

It is the perfect guide for Vikings fans, whether they are re-enactors, role-players, or simply in love with Ragnar.

Valhalla awaits…but in the meantime, seize the helmet by the horns (not a thing) and unleash you inner Viking.
