    One thought on “Viking Saga”

    1. Viking Saga chronicles the life of the legendary Halfdan the Black, who became king to several of Norway’s petty kingdoms and whose descendants had eventually unified the country under one realm. It is a modern translation of a saga written by an unknown 14th century Icelandic author, praised by author/translator Mark Coakley for its “lyrical beauty” and “exquisite comedy”, though questioned over the years for its historical authenticity.This particular Norse saga places Halfdan the Bl [...]
