Memories of old awake

Earlier this year, we shared a piece of flotsam in the form of the Icelandic Saga Map. Created by Dr Emily Lethbridge from the University of Cambridge, it lets you read the ancient sagas by clicking on the places in Iceland where they are said to have occurred. A precursor to the map is Memories of Old Awake, an award-winning film produced by Patrick Chadwick in 2012. It follows Dr Lethbridge as she investigates how the sagas are closely intertwined with the landscapes of the island and the people who live there.
