Nordic Bronze Age God-King
by Tom Rowsell
THE Håga mound (Hågahögen) or King Björn’s barrow is a large Nordic Bronze Age burial mound near Uppsala, Sweden. (The Trundholm sun chariot in the thumbnail and the video was not found in the barrow; it was found in Denmark and is from roughly the same period.)
This mound is one of the most magnificent remains from the Nordic Bronze Age and contained many gold, bronze, and gilt bronze items. It contains a man who was cremated on a pyre, just like Patroclus in Homer’s Iliad. In mounds of this age, we are looking at a Europe-wide, Indo-European phenomenon, and not just a Germanic one.
This video looks at the amazing golden sword and gilt buttons and brooches from the barrow, and compares them to the wider Indo-European pagan custom of burial mounds for great men. You might say a man buried with so much gold was a Golden One… but that is not just a modern reference, nor a reference to wealth. Thinking of this man as a hoarder of wealth is to totally misunderstand the early Indo-European mentality and symbolism inherent in these gold objects.

OUR NEW, remastered audio book edition of The Turner Diaries read by the author, Dr. William Pierce, is now available. You can get your copy now — the CDs are are shipping as soon as orders come in.
The original recordings, made by Dr. Pierce and Kevin Strom on reel-to-reel tape in 1995, had been digitized in the early 2000s, but that digitization process was primitive compared to what we are capable of today; we have remastered this important work using the latest software — and we did it the careful, slow, difficult, craftsman-like way — the way Dr. Pierce would have wanted it.
We are proud to offer you the result, which can be ordered online via http://natall.com/td or by postal mail from National Alliance, Box 172, Laurel Bloomery TN 37680 USA. The fidelity of the disc is excellent: On a good speaker system, it sounds as if Dr. Pierce is with you, reading his book to you personally. There is nothing quite like hearing the man who created The Turner Diaries read it to you himself. And, by purchasing this mp3-CD, you will be supporting the important work of the National Alliance.Listen: Turner Diaries commercial
