MJOLNIR - this is the war hammer of THOR, the god of lightning, thunder, wind, and rain. MJOINIR is the most feared weapon of the Norse gods. It was believed to be able to knock down giants and entire mountains with only one hit. When thrown, THOR's hammer would return to his hand after hitting its target. It is said that MJOINIR was used by THOR to slay JORMUNGANDR during RAGNAROK.

The Vikings feared, yet admired bears, for their sheer power, courage, and the fact that they are the only wild creatures of the north, that are not scared of man! That's why the elite warriors, the Berserkers, evoked their "bear spirit" by using hallucinogenic drugs. Though they hunted bears for their furs, young orphaned cubs were often raised as "pets".

VALHALLA - this is the place where the Vikings that died in battle would go for the afterlife. VALHALLA was located in ASGARD, where there were 540 doors. The doors were so wide that through each huge door, 800 warriors could walk side by side. The roof was covered with golden shields, and the walls around VALHALLA were made from wooden spear shafts.
