The Danegeld (Danish tax/Dane tribute) was a tax raised to pay tribute to the Viking raiders and to save a land from being ravaged. In eleventh century sources it was called the geld or gafol. It was a characteristic of royal policy in England and Francia during the ninth through eleventh centuries, collected both as a tributary to buy off the attackers, and as stipendiary to pay the defensive forces. It was almost always paid in silver because the Vikings used this metal as their main currency for trade.
Yggdrasil is the iconic ash tree of Norse mythology. It serves as the axis mundi (world center) and as a direct connection between the deities and men. The roots play an equally important role in the Norse cosmology of Gods, Giants and Men. Huginn and Muninn fly high in the distance, overlooking the realm of Gods.
