Latin and Old English sources from the Middle Ages talk about an important raven flag used by Norse (specifically Danish) armies, and sometimes associated with Ragnar Lothbrok and his sons. This video looks at the sources for this and considers what the Old Norse name of the flag might have been.

Dr. Jackson Crawford is Instructor of Nordic Studies and Nordic Program Coordinator at the University of Colorado Boulder (formerly UC Berkeley and UCLA). He is a historical linguist and an experienced teacher and translator of Old Norse, Modern Icelandic, and Norwegian.
