Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book West over Sea: Studies in Scandinavian Sea-Borne Expansion and Settlement Before 1300 contains the table of contents, foreword, preface, list of contributors, illustrations and tables, county abbreviations and a bibliography of the published works of Barbara E. Crawford, to the end of 2006. The Old Icelandic sagas were written primarily in a period of at briefest the twelfth, thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, though composition and re-composition continued long thereafter. The meaning of saga-content, not merely its veracity but its significance for its audiences past and present, intended and unintended, gives the text a power that it could not otherwise possess. Meaning, of course, is a two-way process: it involves the intentionality of the text, but it also involves the ways in which an audience can react to the text, and different audiences can react differently.

Keywords: Icelandic sagas; Scandinavian Sea-Borne Expansion
