Interacting with Medieval Iceland

While there is already a wonderful Saga Map out there by Emily Lethbridge, this map presents similar material in a different way (i.e. color-coded regions, themes icons, etc.), and hopes to provide a tool for anyone interested in medieval Iceland and its incredibly geographically-oriented literature. But if you’re looking for an academic tool for exploring all the specific sites mentioned in the sagas, this map may not be for you (but hers most definitely is). Rather, this map breaks locations up by ‘theme’ (i.e. legal sites, religious sites, etc.) rather than by saga. Nevertheless, it may prove useful in visualizing the various aspects of medieval Iceland by bringing them together in a way that also helps different locations stand out.
