This class is a deep dive (pun intended) into the Viking adventures of the Icelandic Sagas. There will be maps, heroes, mystics, madmen, and of course, monsters! Sometimes humorous, occasionally tragic, but always thrilling, the Icelandic Sagas of the Middle Ages provides a map to the mindset, folk belief, and values of medieval Icelanders. The preferred text is _The Sagas of Icelanders: (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)_ by Jane Smiley ISBN: 978-0141000039.
