As summer ends and the Icelandic days get shorter and the air crisper, it’s time in Iceland to crank up that thermal heating and listen to a good story. Bring on a Saga. The Icelandic Sagas are the ancient stories of the country, they are the Icelanders touchstones of their history, their Acropolis or Great Wall if you know what I mean. They are basically family sagas of the early Celtic and Norse settlers who struggled and warred during Iceland’s settlement in the 10th and 11th centuries.
