About this podcast episode...

Today Julia is joined by Nariel a representative of the minority language community of Elfdalian Nariel who recently completed our Online Fantasy Course has put all of us right about some misconceptions about Nordic culture so we invited her to share her story on the podcast In early 2021 the European Council declared Elfdalian a minority language that should be protected and urged Sweden to do the same but Sweden has so far been silent on the topic It is older than English Have a listen and find out about the origin of wargs and Gandalf And just who really is a Viking What fake symbols have seeped into Western culture to represent Vikings Don t pass up this chance to listen to a lady who writes her shopping list in runes because it is quicker We love Nariel s insight into the worlds that inspired Tolkien and hope you do too If you want to find out more you can visit http www ulumdalska se Click here to visit this podcast episode
