Asatro as a reconstructionist movement was founded almost simultaneously in Iceland (Islenska Asatruarfelagid) and America (Asatru Free Assembly). This occurred in the early 1970s.

The historical basis for Asatro is Norse mythos, which may be up to 40,000 years old and originated in northern Europe.

It is very important though to note that Asatro and ancient norse religion are by no means same - they simply share mythology, and symbols, as religions they are however fundamentally different. The latter was a nature religion which primarily focused on pleasing gods, in exchange for basic material needs and provide protection from the forces of nature and enemies, whereas the latter is a New Age religion with more spiritual aims.

As our knowledge of the old norse religion is fairly scarce, and sources for understanding the thinking of this ancient people even more limited, it is safe to assume that making an accurate reconstruction of the the norse religion is an impossibility, and would also serve little or no purpose.
