Encyclopaedia Britannica, Micropaedia, 1981, Chicago, Vol I, p574, Asgard: "Old Norse Asgardr, in Norse mythology, the dwelling place of the gods, comparable to the Greek Mt Olympus. Legend divided Asgard into 12 or more realms, including Valhalla, the home of Odin and the abode of heroes slain in earthly battle...Each important god had his own palace, and many Germanic peoples believed that these mansions were similar in design to those of their own nobility. Asgard could be reached from Earth only by the bridge Bifrost (the rainbow)."
Encyclopaedia Britannica, Micropaedia, 1981, Chicago, VolI, p482, Odin: "One of the principal gods in Norse mythology. His exact nature and role, however, are difficult to determine because of the complex picture of him given by the wealth of archaeological and literary sources. The Roman historian Tacitus stated that the Teutons worshipped Mercury; because `dies Mercurii' (Mercury's day) was identified with Wednesday (Woden's day), there is little doubt that the god Woden (Wodan; the earlier form of Odin) was meant. Though Woden was worshipped pre-eminently, there is not sufficient evidence of his cult to show whether it was practised by all the Teutonic tribes or to enable conclusions to be drawn about the nature of the god. Later literary sources, however, indicate that at the end of the pre-Christian period Odin was the pricipal god in Scandinavia.
"From earliest times Odin was a war god, and he appeared in heroic literature as the protector of heroes; fallen warriors joined him in Valhalla.. Odin was the great magician among the gods and was associated with runes. In outward appearance he was a tall old man, with flowing beard and only one eye (the other he gave in exchange for wisdom). A wide-brimmed hat covered part of his face, and he wore a cloak."
