Author: Mark Cioc
Publisher: University of Washington Press

In two centuries of non-stop hydraulic tinkering the Rhine River has been modified more than any other large river in the world.

It looks at the great river engineering projects of the 19th and 20th centuries, and assesses the impact of the coal, steel and chemical industries on its banks.

Myths and Legends of Northern Europe

Author: Donald A. Mackenzie
ISBN: 9786050365399
Release Date: 2015-03-15
Genre: Body, Mind & Spirit

In the following pages our readers are afforded a comprehensive survey of the divine and heroic literature of Northern Europe. The drama of Norse myth has been reconstructed, so far as possible, in continuous narrative form, with the inclusion of the old Svipdag myth, which exercised so marked an influence on Middle Age romance. We have grouped together the various adventurous journeys made by heroes to Hela, so that our readers may be familiarized with our ancestors' conceptions of the Other World. The prose renderings of heroic narratives include the Beowulf epic, the Balder-Hother romance, the Hamlet legend, the saga of the Volsungs, and the less familiar Dietrich legends, in which the deeds of the primitive Thor are attached to the memory of the Gothic Emperor of Rome.
