The Snake Pit

  • £15.00

Many songs and stories have already been written about the demise of the Viking hero Ragnar Lothbrok. Legend has it that Ragnar finally met his death at the hands of the Northumbrian King Aelle in England after being cast into a snake pit.

Beyond Ragnar, this form of death is found in other Germanic and European tales including those of Dietrich Von Bern and Gunnarr of Burgundy. Perhaps there is a link between this and Wyrmsele, a type of Anglo Saxon hell...

The Snake Pit is the Saxon Storyteller's take on this form of punishment.
