The Magical Staves of Iceland

A remote island of fire and ice, steeped in legends. Iceland has long aroused our imaginations with tales of the Norse in the Eddas and Sagas of old. Witches, and sorcerers too walk this land, who have used symbols known as staves for magical purposes. I explored the history of this, and looked at a few of the examples in this piece. There are some links for books to get your hands on if you want to study these further.
