Keeping the Legacy of a Medieval Legend Alive at Snorrastofa (S01/E05)
0:00 -:--
I visit the Snorrastofa, a research and cultural center at Reykholt, the farm in southwestern Iceland where the great medieval Icelandic historian and writer Snorri Sturluson built his home, a church, and later a small fortress. Sigrun Guttomsdóttir Þormar and I talk about Snorri’s dramatic life, his legacy, and his hot tub, which is still in perfect working condition 800 years after its construction. The music in this episode is by the Iceland/German band Árstíðir lífsins.
