most of the Norse gods and goddesses are reflected in the ancient Anglo-Saxon gods

The head god of the Norse pantheon is Odin. In the Anglo-Saxon tradition Odin is know as Woden. In Europe, the germanic tradition celebrate Wotan. [ in both of these latter traditions the W is sounded V as in Voden and Votan]

The god of thunder and war is Thor, In the Anglo-Saxon tradition he is known as Thunor. Thor/Thunor has a magic hammer which when it strikes his anvil causes lightning.

Priests of the cult of Thor made sacred copies of Thors ring [an armband]. These were used to swear oaths and were essential in the witnessing of truces or peace treaties.
