Sense of Belonging : Morkinskinna & Icelandic Identity, C. 1220, Hardback Book

Sense of Belonging : Morkinskinna & Icelandic Identity, C. 1220 Hardback


Morkinskinna is a thirteenth-century Icelandic saga that portrays the kings who ruled Norway in the eleventh and twelfth centuries.

It emerged during a particularly fertile period of composition of Icelandic kings sagas, and marks a key moment in the genres development, being the first extant work in Old Norse in which the reign of many kings is narrated in detail.

Its structure has long been considered idiosyncratic among Old Norse kings sagas.
