Trivia 9/11

Did you know...
Ancient Viking travelers had a special relationship with ravens-they used them as compasses. While making their way west across Europe from Scandinavia, the Vikings would release the ravens one by one. Because of their natural homing instinct, the ravens would fly in the direction they came from-due east. The Vikings would then simply trudge on in the exact opposite direction-due west.
