In Norse mythology, Huginn (thought) and Muninn (memory) are ravens that soar all over the world (Midgard), and bring information to the god Odin. Huginn and Muninn are depicted on many migration period and viking age items including golden bracelets, Vendel era helmet plates and Germanic Iron Age bird-shaped brooches. Odin’s messengers are linked to shamanic practices, if one makes a blot to Odin and Ravens are seen afterwards it is a sign that Odin has accepted the offering. In skaldic poetry fallen warriors are sometimes referred to as sacrifices to the ravens, as Odin decides who lives and dies in battle.
