Thor Ewing, Author & Historian

Thor Ewing is a writer and historian whose list of publications ranges from Viking hairstyles to Tudor joke books, covering subjects as diverse as myths and sacrifice, Anglo-Saxon sculpture, Scottish clans and historical music along the way. He has worked extensively in bringing an understanding of history to audiences across the UK from primary schools to care homes, from academic conferences to family fun days, and has featured as a contributor for TV and radio.
“I’m fascinated by past cultures and how they connect with us today, and my work explores that connection with our past, whether through the myths and religion of the Vikings, the forgotten wisdom of the medieval Celts, or songs and tales from Tudor England.”
