Ravens play a central role in many Celtic myths. Often representing death and darkness, ravens foretell fallen warriors in battle. In one version of the Arthurian legends, King Arthur transformed into a magnificent raven at the moment of his death. In Norse tales, a pair of ravens (Huginn or thought and Muninn for memory) served the allfather Odin. The birds flew across Midgard, bringing their king news from the world of man. In fact, one of Odin’s names, Hrafnagud, means the “Raven God.”
In Scotland, the ancient goddess Cailleach (also known as Beira, Queen of Winter) was credited with the creation of the mountains and hills of the Highlands as she dropped rocks from her wicker basket. She was rumored to take the form of a bird, often a raven, to feed upon the flesh of men.
