Abstract

The book, A Viking Legend: The Descendants of Odin was presented with a reading at the Scandinavian Cultural Centre in Winnipeg on January 26, 2024, during the week of the wolf moon. Another name for Odin is Yfling or Wolf. Therefore the descendants of Odin are the Yflings or the Wolf Clan. The presenter spoke about the Wolf Clan during the Wolf Moon and wondered if there was a connection between Old Norse mythology and the Wolf Moon.
