It’s 1937 and Europe is on the verge of war. The newspaper headlines talk about the Nazi’s under Adolf Hitler taking over complete power in Germany. Stalin starting another of his many Great Purges to solidify his power. Spain is in the middle of her Civil War (with the Russians and Germans helping opposing sides). Japan has invaded China as a start of her Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere. Italy occupies Ethiopia as a part of Mussolini’s delusions of “Roman” grandeur.
Hidden in the back pages, if it’s even mentioned at all, is a small article about an archeological dig in Gamla Uppsala, Sweden. Seems that the team has found a previously undiscovered cavern system under the old Norse temple located there.
