Edited by Olwyn Owen
The World of Orkneyinga Saga - A Broad-Cloth Viking Trip, is a collection of historical papers on various aspects of Earldom Orkney and the saga.
Edited by Olwyn Owen, a senior inspector of Ancient Monuments, with Historic Scotland, the book brings together a collection of wide-ranging, very readable essays by eminent scholars centred on the theme of the Orkneyinga saga.
The 14 articles come from a group of scholars and historians that reads like a who’s who in Viking studies - William P. L. Thomson, Raymond Lamb, Bo Almqvist, Theya Mollison, Judith Jesch, Olwyn Owen, Anne Brundle, Amanda Forster, Barbara E. Crawford, Haki Antonsson, Judith Robertson and James Barrett.
Some of the articles were delivered at the Sagalands conference held in Kirkwall in January 2004, while others have been written especially for the book.
