The Anglo-Saxon period was very interesting Especially the ancient poems and mythology While looking around the Gods captured my attention Three of them to be exact Woden Thunor and Tiw Woden is known as the most important God of warriors the God of wisdom and the God of war This one eyed chief of Gods hung himself from a tree for nine days seeking the forbidden and mystical knowledge of the runes Woden had the role of selecting who of his men was victorious and who was to die If they were to die one would be trampled by a horse and driven through with a spear by the riderThunor was the son of Woden He is considered a God of simple physical strength He worshipped groves and meadows Thunor did something strange He carried a short-handled hammer which he could use as a held or throwing weapon To praise him people wore hammer amulets around their necks The way we were crosses around our necksThe last God I am noticing is Tiw An older God whose purpose was to battle and to whom human sacrifices were made He also stood for law and order An arrow pointing up was Tiws sure way to say he wanted a successful battleThe God I find most interesting is Woden Only because he almost sacrificed his on life by hanging from that tree Plus he was king of the Gods
