I first must say that this is most certainly not Ms. Davidson' best work. Several of her other books are quite a bit better.

The book looks at Northern European beliefs, myths, and archaeology and seeks to build a general picture of pagan religions among Celtic and Germanic peoples. The book provides a cursory look at archaeology of sacred spaces, some linguistic issues and some basic reviews of myths and legends. On the positive side, the book's scope is pretty good.

On the negative side, I found Davidson's analysis to be overly short and her methodology to be fuzzy.

I would recommend skipping this book and focusing on her other books instead (many of which are excellent).
