I could have done with this book when I began to study Old Icelandic as part of a Master's degree in the history of the English language. This is a splendid companion for anyone who wants to know the minutiae of every day life in the Icelandic commonwealth or free state from 10-13 century. It tells you many things about the society, including the construction of latrines and longhouses and there is possibly more than any sane person would want to know about turf construction. A particularly fine feature of the book is the large number of maps illustrating all kinds of things, including the locations of the 48 so-called 'family sagas'. The 34 page bibliography is excellent and includes many items in Icelandic. IMHO this book is essential reading for those beginning Old Icelandic studies and the general reader whose imagination has been fired by reading the sagas in translation.

I needed this book for a module on my History degree and it was brilliant. I would highly recommend it to anyone studying the Vikings in Iceland. The book covers a wide time period and is easy to follow and understand. The book came quickly. I would definitely use this sender again. Thank you.

A well researched book regarding the early Icelandic settlers and found it of enormous help regarding an online course about the Vikings of 9/10th centuries

Different. In a big way. The country is, the people are, the authority structure is.
