View at publisher


"Be transported to the edge of the world when author Kári Gíslason (The Promise of Iceland) and broadcaster Richard Fidler share dazzling stories, sounds and images from their Icelandic adventure in Icelandic Sagas.

In 2015, the pair travelled to Kári’s birthplace to record stories of the Icelandic sagas—tales from the lives of the early Viking settlers.

Today the sagas are regarded as monuments of world literature, as they detail the great voyages, the long-held feuds and the dramatic love stories of the times.

Get cosy by the fire for an intimate evening of storytelling and discover the tantalising connection between Kári and the greatest of the saga authors.

This event will begin with a brief introduction from Richard and Kári, followed by the performance in the Powerhouse Theatre."

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
