Birds play an important role within many cultures and they have a lot of prominence in Norse mythology. Perhaps the most famous examples are Huginn and Munnin, Odin’s ravens. The birds represent thought and memory, acting as Odin’s eyes into the other realms. Huginn and Munnin’s association with Odin points towards the wider view of ravens being intelligent birds. There’s a lot of interesting history surrounding the two ravens and the connection to Norse mythology.
