Alaric Albertsson (Iowa) is a member of the Troth, and a founding member of the Key City Kindred. In the past he has served on the Board of Directors of the Heartland Spiritual Alliance, and as the Anglo-Saxon Vice Chieftain for the Norse kin of the Druidic organization Ár nDraíocht Féin.

Albertsson first embraced polytheism in the summer of 1971. At this time he had the opportunity to talk with rural people in the Ozark Mountains about traditional moon lore, weather lore, and folk beliefs, and was strongly influenced by spiritist traditions. Over the past five decades, Albertsson's personal spiritual practice has developed as a synthesis of Anglo-Saxon tradition, country folklore, herbal studies, and rune lore.

Alaric Albertsson’s Travels Through Middle Earth: The Path of a Saxon Pagan is a beautifully written book that tells the reader how to incorporate these old pagan beliefs into modern magical practice. The book itself serves as a bridge to the past – connecting the reader to folklore, traditions, and rituals of the Anglo-Saxons in a way that is both comforting and familiar, while still engaging enough to help the reader add depth to their practice.

Contained herein are instructions for performing the húsel, which is a ritual designed to honor one’s ancestors, the Gods, and the elves and dwarves. Also included are observations on Anglo-Saxon cosmology, the wyrd and it’s connection to fate, seasonal tides and ways to celebrate them, rites of passage, worship, and magic. This book is truly a must have for anyone seeking alignment with the old ways of the Anglo-Saxons.
