The summer school schedule has been announced at Háskólasetur Vestfjarða (University Centre of the Westfjords) in Iceland and once again includes a summer course in August on Gísla saga. I recommend the course to anyone with an interest in the sagas, or in Viking-age topics. In addition to the classroom learning in the sagas, in Viking-age history, society, and culture, and in the classical Icelandic language, the course offers field excursions to saga sites and other historical sites, as well as numerous out-of-the-classroom activities. It is a unique opportunity. Full disclosure: I am one of the instructors, and I can't wait to teach it again. More information at: and information about other classes in the summer program is here:
