Many cultures, including most of those developed by our own species, have strong prohibitions against disturbing the remains of the dead; until we know otherwise, we must assume that these beings may have had similar restrictions.

Viking Europe 865 C.E. Harrison, Harry. The Hammer and the Cross. New York: Tor (1993) [Book jacket] "What if... the Gods of Asgard challenged Christianity for the future of mankind?

865 A.D. Warring kings rule over the British Isles, but the Church rules over the kings. Powerful bishops and black-robed priests fill their cathedrals with gold, while threatening all who oppose them with damnation. But there are those who do not fear the priests, and they are the dreaded Vikings of Scandinavia.

Among these Northern invaders, those who follow the Way of the Gods of Asgard carry the Hammer of Thor as their emblem, and they are sworn to increase mankind's knowledge and strength by conquest and by craft. And as Viking warlords cast hungry eyes upon a weak and divided Britain, the Way collides with the Church, launching an all-out war between The Hammer and the Cross.

At the center of this... is Shef... driven by strange visions that seem to come from Odin himself. " [Viking refs. throughout novel.]

A craftsman, visionary, and warrior, Shef has risen from slavery to become king of a mighty Viking nation.

Now Alfred ruled unchallenged in England, through sharing his dominions with some heathen jarl whose name seemed almost a joke. "

First, he led a mighty Viking horde to victory over England. Then he defeated his foes among the Norsemen to become the unquestioned King of the North. Now, in the powerful conclusion to Harry Harrison's acclaimed trilogy, Shef must face the reborn power of the Holy Roman Empire... While the ancient Norse gods observe Shef from distant Asgard, visions and portents warn of the coming Ragnarok, the ultimate Twilight of the Gods.

Scholars theorized that the Vikings sailed up the Mississippi River, then up the Arkansas River, and, finally, up the Poteau River which leads to within a mile of the runestone.

What became of these Norsemen who ventured so far from he fields and fjords of home? Did they leave a legacy other than a date to mark their presence?

Viking I's last photograph, arguably the most famous ever taken, confirmed far more than that. It proved humanity is not alone in the universe, for it shows a Minervan native carrying what cannot be anything but a deliberately manufactured artifact--whether a weapon or simply a pole remains the subject of hot debate.

He had had much help and experience to draw on. The Vikings of the Way contained many skilled shipwrights, quite ready to pass on their knowledge and skills if properly rewarded. Thorvin and his fellow-priests of the Way, immensely interested, had plunged into the work as if they had asked nothing better all their lives--as indeed was true.

The Vikings--a small group of mostly middle-aged men calling themselves the Nordic Worshippers of Odin in the New World--had come to Mitch as well, years before, to conduct their ceremonies.

Pasco man was in fact quite thoroughly Indian, closely related to the Southern Na-dene.

After Ripper's tests on her skeletons, the Worshipers of Odin had once again left in disappointment. In a world of fragile self-justification, the truth made no one happy. "
