Living right in the centre of England, I must confess that my relationship with the sea has not been a close one. I enjoy visiting it when I can but have never spent any length of time connecting with it. I have explored modern Heathenry over the last few years though and so I was intrigued when this book appeared as to whether could help me find that connection.

I have to say I was not disappointed. Dan has a connection with the sea that I will never have but still his exploration of water and how it fits into Heathen beliefs and practices of past and present was both in depth and one I won’t be forgetting any time soon.

He closely examines the deities and beings that have relevance and gives not only sources to back up his work but also further reading so that the reader can explore more should they wish to. Heathenry and the Sea is an incredibly insightful piece of work that I have no doubt I will return to again and again.
