THE BOOK OF WERE-­WOLVES by SABINE BARING-­GOULD Chapter IV - THE ORIGIN OF THE SCANDINAVIAN WERE-­WOLF Among the old Norse, it was the custom for certain warriors to dress in the skins of the beasts they had slain, and thus to give themselves an air of ferocity, calculated to strike terror into the hearts of their foes. Such dresses are mentioned in some Sagas, without there being any supernatural qualities attached to them. For instance, in the Nj?­la there is mention of a man i geithe?­ni, in goatskin dress. Much in the same way do we hear of Harold Harfagr having in his company a band of berserkir, who were all dressed in wolf-­skins, ulfhe?­nir, and this expression, wolf-­skin coated, is met with as a man's name. Thus in the Holmverja Saga, there is mention of a Bj?­rn, "son of Ulfhe?­in, wolfskin coat, son of Ulfhamr, wolf-­shaped, son of Ulf, wolf, son of Ulfhamr, wolf-­shaped, who could change forms.­" But the most conclusive passage is in the Vatnsd?­la Saga, and is as . . .

"I shall never forget the walk I took one night in Vienne, after having accomplished the examination of an unknown Druidical relic, the Pierre labie, at La Rondelle, near Champigni. I had learned of the existence of this cromlech only on my arrival at Champigni in the afternoon, and I had started to visit the curiosity without calculating the time it would take me to reach it and to return. Suffice it to say that I discovered the venerable pile of grey stones as the sun set, and that I expended the last lights of evening in planning and sketching.­"
