The Icelanders’ sagas are a literary phenomenon from the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. They are focused on history, especially genealogical and family history. They reflect the struggle and conflict that arose within the societies of the second and third generations of Icelandic settlers.

The authors of the Icelanders’ sagas are unknown.

This book was printed in 1947 and belonged to my grandparents. It contains; Njáls saga, Þorsteins þáttr tjaldstæðings, Orms þáttr Stórólfssonar and Holta-Þóris saga.
