The Norse sagas are medieval stories that mined old Norse mythology, written down in Iceland at the end of the Viking era. They run the gamut from realistic travel chronicles to a sort-of sword-and-sorcery with witches, monsters, and ghosts. They are all thick with murder and intrigue; many of them today would require a "trigger warning" for violence or adult content. No worries, though; the class will be family-friendly. Prepare for an amazing excursion into some "Dark Age" swashbuckling that continues to profoundly influence modern culture.
