Translated Into English
From Vor folkeŠt i oldtiden I-IV
By W. Worster
1931


To he Momory
of
Vilhelm Thomsen

This work was first printed in Danish 1909-12 under the title of "Vor FolkeŠt i Oldtiden"; it was translated into English by the late William Worster, M. A., and afterwards revised, in part rewritten, by the author.

My thanks are due to Mr. J. V. Perowne who kindly undertook to read through the Essay on Ritual Drama and offered much valuable advice.

For the Index I am indebted to my wife.

Gentofte, November 1931.      Vilhelm Gr÷nbech
