Today I talk with Dr. Mathias Nordvig who teaches at the University of Colorado Boulder, in the Nordic Studies Program. He teaches Pre-Christian Nordic mythologies, Scandinavian folklore, North Atlantic and Greenlandic literature, reception history of the Viking Age, and much more! In today’s episode, we explore The Saga of Icelanders, and how we can use them as a source for the Viking Age. We also discuss the exceptionality of Iceland, and why migration promotes individualism. Please be sure to check out more of his work on Academia.edu via the link below.
