Saxo Grammaticus - Deeds of the Danes - Gesta Danorum

Gesta Danorum – Deeds of the Danes

It is one of the major sources for the heroic and mythological traditions of northern Europe, though the complex Latin style and the wide range of material brought together from different sources have limited its use.
