Good episode? Give it some love!
Today I chat with Dr. Alexandra Sanmark, Reader in Medieval Archaeology at the Centre for Nordic Studies at the University of the Highlands and Islands. We discuss assembly sites across the Old Norse World and the significance they had in how the Vikings governed their people.

The Poetic Edda is a collection of medieval Icelandic poems about the Norse gods and their human heroes. It is a crucial source for Norse myth and has inspired the literary works of J.R.R. Tolkein and the operas of Richard Wagner.
