The north of Europe here means the part of Europe which has evolved apart from the direct Greco-Roman influences. The Iberian peninsula was influenced very late by the Greco-Roman culture. Thus, the Basque Mythology has a very unique structure.

The area north of the Alps had a very heterogeneous cultural background. All the different cultures developed politically, sociologically, and religiously independent. Nevertheless, all of the different cultures share the Indo-European heritage. The differences are fewer than the similarities.

In the north of Europe, i.e. Iceland, Scandinavia, Denmark, Germany, and East Europe, the Norse Mythology had a lot of influences coming from the plains of Asia. This is e.g. apparent in the horse worship of the Saxons.
The Latvian Mythology belongs to one of the oldest surviving Indo-European culture.

The Celtic Mythology developed in the more western regions of northern Europe, i.e. the British Isles, Ireland, The north of France, and Spain.
