The fortress of the Asir or the Northern gods, the
Olympos of Scandinavian mythology. It is said to be situated in the
centre of the universe, and accessible only by the rainbow-bridge (
Bifrost). The word As means a “god,” and gard an
“enclosure,” our “yard.” Odin was priest of Asgard before he migrated
to the Lake Logur or Moelar Sea
