Our grand quest to put the sagas of the Icelanders on trial begins with an acknowledged classic–the relatively brief (but totally epic) Hrafnkels saga Freysgoði. This is the timeless story of a harsh chieftain who falls from power and rises again, the men who band together against him, and the horse at the center of it all. Hrafnkel’s saga offers a listener-friendly introduction to the complex and blood-drenched world of the Icelandic sagas. And it comes with torture! But is bloodshed and torture enough to earn this saga a top score from John and Andy? Or will the saga be judged harshly for its lack of scope and poor treatment of animals? Find out now!
