Originally published in 1921, this book contains English translations of stories taken from the Fornaldar Sogur Northrlanda, or 'Stories of Ancient Times relating to the countries of the North', a collection of Old Norse Sagas edited by Rafn in 1829-30 and re-edited by Valdimar Asmundarson in 1886-91. The stories contained in this collection deal almost exclusively with times anterior to Harold the Fairhaired (c. 860-930), and the colonisation of Iceland. Written texts for the stories as a rule come from the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, though the actual manuscripts themselves are generally later. This English edition contains a generous introduction and explanatory tes, making it accessible to the general reader. It will be of value to anyone with an interest in Old Norse literature.
