The earliest account of English heathen practice reveals that they worshipped the Earth Mother and called
her Nerthus. The names Tiw, Woden, Thunor, and Frig have been preserved in place names and in the days of
the week. The tales, beliefs and traditions of that time are still with us and able to stir our minds and
imaginations; they have played a part in giving us A Midsummer Night´s Dream and The Lord of the Rings.
The author sifts through royal genealogy, charms, verse and other sources to find clues to the names and
attributes of the Gods and Goddesses of the early English.
Kathleen Herbert is the author of a trilogy, set in sixth century Britain, which includes a winner of the
Georgette Heyer prize for an outstanding historical novel.
