8. Gudrid and Freydís (Greenlanders' Sagas)


In our eighth episode, we discuss Gudrid Thorbjarnardóttir and Freydís Eiríksdóttir, the two principle female characters from the Greenlanders' Sagas (The Greenlanders' Saga and the Saga of Eirik the Red). We discuss the importance of familial honor, why the same stories can differ so much from one text to another, and what makes the ideal Viking woman.
