Basics of Sumbel

Basics of Sumbel

Basics of Sumbel

Alcohol was a prominent feature of Viking life and was particularly important to several seasonal religious festivals, of which the Scandinavians celebrated three: the first occurring after harvest, the second near midwinter, and the last at midsummer. The Sagas often tell of the first round of drink being served by noble women, as in this passage from Beowulf:

"Wealhtheow, Hrothgar's queen now made her appearance according to courtly custom. Adorned with gold, she greeted the company in the banqueting hall. The noble lady first presented a goblet to Hrothgar. She bade him enjoy the revels, upon which the king gladly took part in the sumbel. Then Wealhtheow the Helming princess visited every corner of the hall, tendering the jewelled cup to veterans and the younger men."
