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.
