@RevRab: right again! Important source for LOTR.
Kalevala: the national epic of Finland
which describes the creation of the universe in 3 paragraphs,
and describes the creation of beer in 14 pages

Thanks to the Kalevala earlier, I've spent the last hour wiki'ing Finnish culture and history. Currently on the Finnish Civil War.
