Nordsending was the name given by southern Norwegian people of the late Medieval and Early Modern period to magical attacks from the sorcerous sub- Arctic and Arctic. It was the ‘broadcast from the north’. The Scots, the English and the Danes had other names for it. But all understood it similarly: the invisible medium through which turbulent air, splinters of iron or quartz, sharp stones, stone arrowheads and little mice were shot into the bodies of the healthy by Nordic witches.
