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. In Norse tales, Odin was served by a pair of ravens (Huginn or thought and Muninn or memory). 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.”
