A Person Has Many Souls

This whole post is great, but I love the part about the explanation of why Vikings burnt the bodies of their fallen comrads.

Burying their remains in foreign soil would have been a ghastly idea since they would have to continue their existence in their graves all alone and separated from their kin, community and homeland. So the travelers burned the bodies of their deceased fellows in order to free the soul from the body to find a new home in the skies.
