    1 thought on “The Ghosts of Iceland

    1. A somewhat-dry anthropological study written as a supplemental text for college cultural anthro courses but still fascinating for anyone interested in the diversity of world beliefs/mythologies, especially Viking lore. The people of Iceland overwhelmingly identify as Christian, yet many of the same people still hold to remnants of Norse paganism, such as a belief in the ability to make contact with spirits, the dead, elves, etc.
