What we know about Finnish mythology is mainly based on our national epic Kalevala and some other collections of oral tradition. Kalevala is a collage of poems collected some 150 years ago by Elias L?nnrot. It contains several mythical worldviews: stoneage myths, ideas adopted from Viking-age adventurers, Christian legends, rustic poems of the countryfolk, ideas expressed by female lyric poets and tradition passed on by witches.
