    Welll…I will say it again..come to Iceland and film here..the homeland of the dwarfs in the Hobbit…where better to film this story than here…a list for you to enjoy taken from our poetic Edda 1270 and host the name of the dwarfs from our old heathen belief Asatru that Tolkien truly used in his stories…In the Dvergatal section, the Völuspá divides the dwarves into what may be three tribes, lead firstly by Mótsognir their first ruler, secondly by Durinn, and finally by Dvalinn. Hávamál mentions Dvalinn brought the rune writing to the Dvergar..
