|The History of Caithness is
wrapped in legends of Norse invaders, who settled here and have given
much to our local identity - many of our local place names are of Norse
origin. If you are out on the town on a Saturday night you may still see
several warriors frequenting the pubs - searching for fair maidens, ale
Olaf (Battleaxe) Svenson is joining our team, Battleaxe is his nickname and he hates it - so it's Mr Svenson to you. Olaf has a pet raven called Thorfinn who is his best friend and his conscience - you'll want to wring the scruffy bird's neck. Follow his adventures in our joke pages and look out for him sneaking in anywhere around the site - like all good Vikings he is an opportunist.
