Rock_Ptarmigan_j08-1-681_l_1

In this episode, we continue our series of stories from the Northeast of Iceland.  This time around, Helgi Droplaugarson goes head to head with the powerful chieftain Helgi Asbjarnarson.  While Helgi D. makes life difficult for his rival by undercutting him at every chance he gets, Helgi A. takes it all with patience.  Does Helgi A. have a good reason for holding back?  Or is he just biding his time as he waits for the right moment to attack?  There’s only one way to find out.  Listen, as Saga Thing presents The Saga of Droplaug’s Sons!

The first part of this episode, much like the saga itself, is a bit heavy on social dynamics and genealogical connections.  To help you navigate these relationships, Andy has prepared this handy genealogy using Family Echo.  Be sure to click on different names in the genealogy to see where it takes you.  The connections are fascinating if you pay attention.
