    Hi, Looking for Info on Very Ancient Germanic Myths ~ I Guess I Came to the Right Place :)

    hi, looking for info on very ancient germanic myths ~ i guess i came to the right place

    I spotted this forum while browsing for images and info on ancient Germanic warfare and myths, it looks kinda cool so I thought I would join.

    I am not sure where to start, but I want to ask people for imagery I could use on shields etc for 3D models, basically I am making a modification of rome total war [the game] that may later get moved onto a newer format. The mod is about European myths, so includes Hellenic [which it is mainly focused on], Germanic and Celtic myths.

    So where is the best place to post about this?

    Thanks people, yes I will have a look at the photoblog. I am also looking for re-enactment sites featuring Germanic warriors from before the roman invasion of gaul [approximately].

    One quick question; how far back do the norse myths go? Were they similar with gods like thor etc, at around 1000 - 500 bc?


    As far as the modification goes, I will show you what I make, my modeller is just making the norse faction, [suggestions welcome] and I have already made the amazons, satyres, greeks and starting on the lidd and centaurs.

    It will be unusual, but you will be able to fight norse Vs greek mythology, although its more about hero quests and massive battles.

    Btw where is the photo blog? Sry if I am being blind.

    And why is it so hard to post here, nothing ever shows.

    Before the viking age, for example the bronse age, fertility gods were more popular. Here in Norway we have alot of stone phalloses as evidence of that. The warrior gods of the æsir came later, im not sure of the fertility gods were a remnance of the old fertility gods. The god Tyr seems to be a old god that lost his popularity during the viking age.

    Thanks hersir

    didn’t the ancient germans worship woden?

    I was just reading a link from this forum, about Viking helms, and apparently in the bronze age they may have had horns or wings, though I am not sure if that was celtic [even though the helm was found in denmark]. There doesn’t seam to be much difference between the cultures the further you go back.

    Any thoughts on this much appreciated as well as armour in the bronze/iron age. Anything from 300 bc or before really.

    Cheers!

    Im not really sure if they worshipped Woden way back then, but I dont know so much about this area. I have seen those helmets too. They found a Odin figure in Denmark, but it is only 900 years old.
