Urdarbrunn

Norse - A sacred well in Midgard. This well or fountain, situated beside that root of Yggdrasil which leads up to Asgard and guarded by the three Norns, was so holy that nobody was allowed to drink from it. In some accounts, the decapitated head of Mimir was placed beside this well, rather than beside Mimisbrunnr in Asgard. Called Urdarbrunn, Urdar, Urdar, Urda's well, Urda's well, Wyrd's Brook or Wyrd's Brook.
