TED-Ed "The myth of the Sampo"

  • After a skirmish at sea and long days of being battered by waves, Väinämöinen —
    a powerful bard as old as the world itself— washed up on the shores of distant Pohjola.
    A cunning witch nursed him back to health but demanded a reward for returning him home. Not content with mere gold or silver, the witch wanted what did not yet exist. Hanna-Ilona Härmävaara digs into the Finnish myth of the Sampo.
