Runebommen fra Velfjord / Herlaug Vonheim.

Title: Runebommen fra Velfjord / Herlaug Vonheim.
Translated title: The magic drum from Velfjord.
Author(s): Vonheim, Herlaug.
Date: 1997.
Language: Norwegian.
In: Ottar. (1997.), Vol. 4 (1997)
Abstract: Drum was found in 1969 in Henrikdal and greeted as "national jewel" because of rarity of such occurrences. Thomas von Westen, "apostle to Saami" won trust, so over 100 drums were given up and sent to Copenhagen, where they were accidentally burnt. Other drums were buried for secret use by remaining noaidi. Article describes sketch by Kristine Vesterfjell of a drum, and her commentary on its symbols and how they were used in seances. She and her brother Nils described procedure to Harald Strøm in 1965. Family links with noaidi are explained.
