Preface and acknowledgements. This book has been in the making for twenty years, since one of the authors lived in Canada, a European culture made intangibly different by the absence of encrusted layers of European history. Part of the reason for this intangible difference is made clear in the present volume. The European Pagan heritage is one that is generally overlooked, but here we bring it to light. Over the years many people have helped with ideas and research. For the present volume, two people in particular have given of their time and expertise and our manuscript would be much the poorer without them. One is Mr Phil Line, who kindly offered his considerable knowledge of Finnic and Baltic religion in reading our chapters 9 and 10. The other, and principal helper, is Dr Ronald Hutton, who valiantly read through the whole manuscript, making many observations on matters of fact, restraining any impulse to comment on points of interpretation, but keeping us up to date with current scholarship on the subject. Any errors that remain are ours and not theirs. We are acutely aware that worthwhile research is impossible without easy access to literary sources and commentaries. The open bookstacks of the Cambridge University Library are a blessing to the serious investigator, and its friendly and helpful staff turn research into a pleasure. All references are credited in the footnotes, but we are grateful to the following for permission to reprint longer passages of copyright material: Viking Penguin, Inc., Laurence Pollinger Ltd and the Estate of Frieda Lawrence Ravagli for the quotation from D.H. Lawrence on p. 2; Thomas Kinsella for the quotation from his edition of The Tain on p. 91; Chatto & Windus for the quotations from the Orkneyinga Saga on p. 150; Basil Blackwell Ltd and Harper Collins USA for the quotation from J.M. Wallace-Hadrill’s The Barbarian West on p. 152; and Macmillan Ltd for the quotation from Eric Christiansen’s translation of the Galician-Livonian Chronicle on p. 172. All attempts at tracing the copyright holder of the quotations from John Holland Smith’s Death of Classical Paganism in chapter 4 have been unsuccessful, but we are grateful to Cassell pic, present owners of the Geoffrey Chapman imprint, for their help in the matter.
