VIKING TV series: Snorri Sturluson and the Warrior Stories of Scandinavia

 

Herland Report: Our new YouTube VIKING TV series with Lars Magnar Enoksen, Halvor Tjønn, Georg Olafr Reydarsson is catching fire for its unorthodox view on Scandinavia and Norway.

We speak about Viking ships, expansion, Russia, Constantinople, sorcery, heathen  “norrøn” Norse religion, runes and the raw power of the Viking culture. Watch episode one here!

We now celebrate 10 million views on YouTube in just a short while and release new interviews about the spectacular Viking Age.

The coming weeks, Herland Report news site will publish also exciting articles about the Viking age in Scandinavia, from around 750 until the 1100s AD.

One of the main reasons why the Viking tales still are so vividly alive about this period is because the stories were written down shortly after they happened. Several historical sources retell the tales, among them Snorri Sturluson.

Particularly, in 1230 AD, on the obscure island of Iceland, a middle aged Norse huscarl sat down and began to write. His name was Snorri Sturluson. Though he was a warrior, he was also a poet and author.

He enjoyed a wealth of knowledge, for he had collected all the oral lore concerning the epic tales of his forefathers. Snorri knew this history better than anyone. (Feature photo: Author, Glima wrestling Master and Viking age expert, Lars Magnar Enoksen in The Herland Report studio.)

VIKING TV series: Snorri Sturlason and the Warrior Stories of Scandinavia: The famous Norwegian modern day Viking chieftain, Georg Olafr Reydarsson has guided Ted Turner, Mel Gibson, the VIKINGS series crew and many more in Gudvangen, Sogn for many years. Huffington Post and international media have interviewed Reydarsson over the years. Here in the Herland Report studio.

 

VIKING TV series: Snorri Sturluson and the Warrior Stories of Scandinavia: Gifted by lyrical flair and good memory, he had now been requested by the King of Norway to write the epic sagas of the Kings.

If he could write down the origins of the Vikings, the great deeds and acts they accomplished while still alive and the forging of their Kingdoms – he would immortalize them.

These stories are rich in both charm and dread. They follow the valiant Kings of old who dwelled in the Northern mountains and seas, and decided to carve out a Kingdom there, and call it the land of the Northmen.

Through the beauty of Norse rhyming, the stories of these men had so far been recorded in an endless amount of poems.

VIKING TV series: Snorri Sturluson and the Warrior Stories of Scandinavia: Snorri’s innovation was to translate them into written sagas of how the Vikings and their descendants forged the throne of ancient Norway.

Norway is an ancient land. Its origins are clouded by myth and mystery. Its tall and majestic mountains have witnessed many untold events.

But the mountains do not share their secrets, so it is up to us to uncover them. We must therefore collaborate with both medieval and contemporary historians; Viking poets and current-day archaeologists; to illuminate the truths of how this Northern outpost was made a Kingdom.

What we are left with is a comprehensive set of life stories, told in a captivating and visually compelling manner, that does justice to both the medieval sagas and the scholarship of history.

The stories of the Viking age so vividly described by Snorri Sturlason is riddled with cunning geopolitics, fierce battles, notorious raiding, and bitter betrayal.
