The Travels of Gnaevaldrskald is a scroll that was given to Eragon by Oromis as part of Eragon's Dragon Rider training. The scroll, an autobiographical work by the elf Gnaevaldrskald, contained information on Urgal culture and traditions, detailing, among other things, the means by which Urgal males gain status (combat) and the manner in which Urgal females select their mates (observation of prowess in combat). It was somewhat unusual for an anthropological study of Urgals to be in the possession of the elves, although there have been some dealings between their races.
