Tom Birkett

As well as a treasure trove of these epic stories of heroism and cruelty, squabbles and seductions, The Norse Myths is a comprehensive study of their origins, survival and interpretations - as academically important as it is exhilarating.

Dr Tom Birkett is a lecturer in Old English and Old Norse at University College Cork, Ireland. He spent a lot of time running round castles as a child, moved to Norway for a year in pursuit of the Vikings, and hasn't looked back since. He is author of Reading the Runes (Routledge, 2017), and editor of Translating Early Medieval Poetry (Boydell, 2017) and Reimagining the Vikings (MIP, forthcoming) and runs the World-Tree teaching archive. He teaches courses on Norse myth, medieval literature and Old English language at UCC and occasionally takes time out to sail with the crew of a reconstructed Viking ship.
