'Tímakornið' - broadcast yesterday, and you can listen online for a
couple of weeks - covers topics such as the idea of freedom in Old
Icelandic writings and how they've been interpreted in recent
centuries, and the relationship of Old Icelandic culture to that of
medieval Europe as a whole. There are extracts read from Egils saga
(the settlement of Iceland), Sturlunga saga (the death of Snorri
Sturluson), and the law-code Grágás. The programme begins with a poem
by Egill Skallagrímsson set to music.
