URDARBRUNN


URDARBRUNN Well of Urd, Well of Fate The well or spring at the center of asgard, which was the home of the aesir gods.Urdarbrunn was a powerful symbol in Norse mythology. Its waters flowed out at the base of one of the three great roots of yggdrasil, the World Tree. The well was named after urd, one of the norns, or Fates, who determined the directions of people's lives. Based on the well's name, scholars argue that the norse people believed the waters of this well con-tained great powers.The gods rode their horses to this well each day and sat there in judgment over the world.
