Support this podcast on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/historyofvikingDuring the Middle Ages, seafaring Scandinavian marauders wrought havoc in lands both near and far—from Iceland to Finland, and Córdoba to Constantinople. These were warriors who belonged to an altogether violent society. They are known to us today as Vikings. One may read about their military exploits in Old Norse sagas and the chronicles of Christian monks; walk across the remains of warships and ring fortresses, or behold their carefully preserved weapons in some of Europe's finest museums. Yet, it has always been unclear to me how the Vikings fought. Did they use battle tactics? Were young warriors formally trained for battle? How should we understand warfare as it relates to the Viking way of life? Today on the podcast, we'll be addressing all of this and more in an exciting episode about Viking combat. Joining me to discuss this topic is William R. Short, manager and lead researcher of Hurstwic, a New England-based organization devoted to Viking culture. In addition to co-authoring his latest book, William wrote Viking Weapons and Combat Techniques along with Icelanders in the Viking Age. I'm also joined today by Reynir A. Óskarson, an Icelandic martial arts instructor and combat researcher at Hurstwic. Reynir has been recognized by the Wrestling Association of Iceland for his study of glíma, the Viking-age empty-hand combat that evolved into Iceland's national sport.William and Reynir authored a book entitled Men of Terror: A Comprehensive Analysis of Viking Combat.Email Noah with ideas for future episodes: email@example.comMusic: Danheim – Framganga & FolkvangrSupport this podcast on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/historyofviking

Iceland is a country of great volcanic interest with three eruptions in one area since 2021, which has been a hotspot for tourism. We speak with Jorge Montalvo about educating and informing the public safely in one of the most popular volcanic countries in the world. Let's meet Jorge - Geologist, Secondary School Teacher, and Science Communicator. I am a Colombian-born Icelandic geologist with a lot of interest in Natural Hazards (particularly volcanic hazards) and how to mitigate their negative impact on vulnerable populations. My inspirations for this career path were the eruptions at Nevado del Ruiz in 1985 and Heimaey in 1973. In recent years, I have been mostly involved in research and teaching at High School level here in Iceland. I am currently on a slightly different path but aiming at, eventually, making my way into Civil Protection.

In tonight's segment, we discuss the increase in recent volcanic activity and the imminent eruption of the Icelandic volcano that has been dormant for over 800 years and has awakened! We also discuss a recent report from scientists who believe that humanity has now entered a cycle of human history where we are going to see a major uptick in volcanic eruptions around the Globe. Will this cycle be the fulfillment of many of the prophets of the Bible regarding the last days prior to the coming of the Lord?
As I mentioned in the previous episode, residents of Grindavík have been evacuated. Scientists have been anticipating a potential eruption but no lava has come up to the surface as of right now. However, that doesn‘t mean damage has not been done. The tens of thousands of earthquakes in Grindavik have resulted in major cracks in the earth opening up. There are literal holes in the streets where a whole car could fall in. Damage to buildings and parts of the town is extensive and it will take a lot of construction to restore the area. The restoration efforts can only happen once it is clear that an eruption will not happen and no one knows when that will be clear. Magma is still being detected close to under the surface beneath the town. The Blue Lagoon Remains Closed Due to the situation, the Blue Lagoon has announced it will remain closed until November 30th. There is no knowing if it will for sure open by November 30th but we shall see. One thing that is happening is the construction of lava barriers to around Svartstengi power station and the Blue Lagoon to protect them in the event of a volcanic eruption. The barriers are estimated to be 20-26 feet high (6-8 meters) and will take a little over a month to complete. Protecting the power station is important because it provides hot water to all of the Reykjanes Peninsula. Over 2,000 Workers Impacted by the Evacuation In addition to the thousands of people who can‘t access their homes, over 2,000 workers and around 200 companies operate in this area. They have no idea when they will be allowed to be back to work or even the area. Retreiving Valuable Items & Rescuing Pets in Grindavik Residents of Grindavik were allowed to access their homes to gather as much as they can within a 5-minute window. I know that sounds incredibly short. It is possible they had a little more time than that but is the time limit posted via news sources. Residents had to leave their homes late at night and for many that meant they were forced to leave their pets behind. Dýrfinna, the search and rescue group for animals, has been working on rescuing pets left behind. As of right now, they rescued 100s of animals but 12 of them are still unaccounted for. Most of the unaccounted for animals are cats who are used to roaming aorund free outside. Tax Hike to Fund Reconstruction An excerpt from a news article on Iceland Reveiw about the Icelandic Government's vote to fund the wall around the Blue Lagoon and power station. The lava barriers will be financed by levying an additional tax on property owners in Iceland equivalent to 0.08% of their property's fire insurance valuation (brunabótamat). The owner of a property worth ISK 100 million [$695,000, €650,000] will therefore pay an additional ISK 8,000 [$56, €52]. The tax will be levied for a period of three years, though it bears noting that similar taxes imposed in "Iceland have later become permanent. Pirate Party MP Þórhildur Sunna Ævarsdóttir and Centre Party Chairman Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson argued that any lava barriers constructed should be paid for with existing tax revenue. Some locals have argued that the privately-owned Svartsengi Power Plant and Blue Lagoon, which have made significant profits in recent years, should partake in financing the barriers." Iceland Review Tweet Donate to Red Crosses Relief Efforts in Grindavik Donate to the Icelandic Red Cross‘s emergency fundraising campaign to support the response to the current situation in Grindavik. https://www.raudikrossinn.is/english/donate/donate-now/ Thank you to everyone who has reached out to me and others asking if we are ok. It is only the people in Grindavik that have been evacuated. The airport and all other parts of the Reykjanes Peninsula are operating as usual. Will let you know if that changes.

Comedian Aparna Nancherla, who's been a staff writer on “Late Night,” talks about her new memoir called “Unreliable Narrator: Me, Myself and Impostor Syndrome.” Biden is facing calls from inside the government to end the violence in Gaza, but it's unclear whether the US has the power to stop the bloodshed. What will come out of Wednesday's meeting between President Biden and China's Xi Jingping? The two leaders will likely discuss fentanyl, Taiwan, and global conflicts. “A Murder at the End of the World” follows a mystery at a tech billionaire's Icelandic retreat and reflects the anxieties of our time.
There are some rumblings around Iceland at the moment as volcanologists fear a large-scale eruption in the south-west of the island nation ... The town of Grindavik has been evacuated after a series of earthquakes over the past couple of weeks raised fears that a river of magma underneath the Reykjanes Peninsula could be getting ready to blow. Benjamin Hennig is a geographer and an associate professor of geography at the University of Iceland.

Icelandic singer and songwriter Laufey Lín Jónsdóttir, known by the mononym Laufey (pronounced Lay-vay), is having a breakout year. Now based in L.A., the young singer with the timeless-sounding voice crafts songs which look to the great American songbook and the jazz-inflected pop of the mid-20th century. Her roots are in both classical music (she's a trained cellist) and in jazz and her mission is connecting multiple generations, especially her own, to both jazz and classical music. She plays modern torch songs from her latest album, Bewitched, in-studio. [P.S. Check out Laufey's online book club.] Set list: “Promise”, “California and Me”, “From the Start”
Iceland is declared a state of emergency after a series of earthquakes which hit the Reykjanes Peninsula. Authorities have ordered thousands of people living in the southwestern town to leave as a precaution. A popular tourist destination, we hear concerns from travellers and look at the potential knock-ons for the Icelandic economy.
The town of Gríndavík, Iceland, has been evacuated and a state of emergency declared following a series of earthquakes caused by magma bubbling beneath the surface. Residents are now waiting for a likely eruption, which experts say could occur anywhere along a fifteen-kilometre fissure - or narrow crack - in the ground. Darren Adam is a correspondent in Reykjavík. Adam spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.

The idea behind the Icelandic company Carbfix is simple: pack water full of carbon dioxide (literally carbonate it, like a SodaStream) and inject it deep underground into Iceland's porous basaltic rock. Minerals in the rock dissolve in the water, where they react with the CO2 to become calcium carbonates. The carbon effectively becomes rock, which it will remain, for all intents and purposes, permanently. Or at least thousands and thousands of years. It is as long-term as carbon sequestration gets.The idea dates back to 2006, but pilot injections didn't begin until 2013 and it wasn't until 2016 that a study published in Science confirmed that 95 percent of the CO2 in the water was mineralizing within two years — far faster than most had assumed possible. Since it started, Carbfix has sequestered almost 100,000 metric tons of CO2 at its original site, but that is just a drop in the bucket compared to what it believes is possible. It has plans to make Iceland a major international carbon-burial hub and to replicate its technology in other geographies, maybe even in the shallow ocean. When I visited the Carbfix operation in October and saw it in action, I was extremely intrigued and had a million more questions, so last week I got in touch with Ólafur Teitur Guðnason, Carbfix's head of communications, to talk about where the company gets the CO2 it buries, where it plans to get it in the future, whether burial can work in other kinds of rocks and geographies, and exactly how much carbon Iceland can store.

Anna Björg Þórarinsdóttir is the manager of The Museum of Icelandic Sorcery & Witchcraft in The Westfjords region of Iceland. We begin on the country's origins as a Viking settlement, followed by life in the traditional turf houses. From there we learn that belief in elves is still relevant today and how spirits in the land have shaped not only Icelandic legends, but the ethos. We hear of a nearby farm built over a heathen temple where an ominous Viking-era stone was discovered. In story form, Anna tells the rich history of the island's 16th-to-17th-century sorcerers: the religious temperament of the time, their persecution, and her own ancestral involvement. This opens up further synchronicities around her position at the museum & growing up in a New Age household. For the remaining time, it's an all out deluge of folklore and magic: spirit guides called Fylgja, hunting & farming folk magic, The Helm of Awe, the Yule Lads, a pair of human skin pants, and finally, a grotesque milk-stealing wool-worm known as the Tilberi!

Join Kevin King and his guest, Jana Krekic, a language specialist and the founder of YLT Translations, as they engage in a fascinating conversation exploring the importance of translating Amazon listings for different countries. Listen to Jana share her inspiring journey from working in a call center 17 years ago to becoming a language expert and entrepreneur. Discover how she stumbled upon the Amazon industry and used it to generate her first sales, sparking her ambition to venture out on her own. As we continue, Jana and Kevin tackle the challenges of learning European languages such as Finnish and Icelandic. With these languages lacking international words, we discuss the best strategies for language learning and the crucial role of immersion and conversation with native speakers. We also underline the significance of thinking in the target language to achieve true fluency. We also turn our attention to the limitations of AI in listing and content creation, analyzing its potential in copywriting, translations, and localization. Moving on, we examine the potential of Open AI in creating more nuanced translations of listings and how this could revolutionize the translation process. We also explore the awakening of some brands to the potential of Amazon's global reach. We also shed light on the challenges of localizing listings when selling on Amazon's international marketplaces and how AI tools can assist in copywriting and translations. So tune in as we navigate the complexities of language, translation, and the power of connection in achieving success.

After a dip in a frigid Icelandic lake I have gone from being someone who hates the cold to taking a cold plunge every morning. What is even better is that I have seen a huge difference in how I feel as a result. Experts are saying dipping in water that is less than 15 C can have profound positive impacts on our health.

Have you ever felt like the bright lights of something have pulled you in the wrong direction? Did you ever make it back to where you belong?

Oftentimes, awards are popularity contests. We get that. But it's still nice to see the players and teams you follow get some recognition. To that end, we discuss the Lions who made the final cut for Major League Soccer's end-of-season awards. We don't think they'll win, but it's nice to be nominated. However, it's not nice to be snubbed. We point out two individuals who should have been among the final three in their categories and why we think they should have been in the running. After that, we welcome Orlando City midfielder and fullback Dagur Dan Thorhallsson back to the show. The young Icelandic player had a nice first season in purple and he talks with us a bit about the playoffs and what the Lions have to do to break down Nashville SC and to stop Hany Mukhtar — or at least slow him down. Big thanks to Dagur for returning to our podcast with a big match coming up. After our recap, we checked the mailbagbox, which asked us about our soccer backgrounds as players, perfect albums, what Orlando City's philosophy should be this off-season, and more. Remember, if there's anything — and we do mean anything — you want us to address on the show, just ask us by tweeting it to us at @TheManeLand with the hashtag #AskTMLPC. Finally, we previewed Nashville SC, pointed out our key matchups for the game, and made our score predictions. Here's how No. 385 went down: 0:15 – The MLS end-of-season awards finalists were released on Thursday and there were some Lions included and a couple of major (to us, anyway) snubs. 15:19 – Dagur Dan Thorhallsson returns to the show and now we can only expect something fantastic from his celebration if he scores in the playoffs. 32:42 — We answer some great questions in the mailbagbox and try to predict what will happen Monday night when the playoffs start for Orlando City.

Over the years, I have traveled extensively around Iceland in a camper van, so the pros and cons I'm sharing in this episode are from personal experience. While the list might not cover every possible pro and con, I think it will give you enough insight about the experience to help you decide if this is something you want to do. Rent a Camper Van in Iceland & Save If you plan to rent a camper van, I highly recommend using Go Campers. I've use two of their campers on long road trips. One was the Go Lite Automatic camper and the other is Go Big Automatic Camper. They currently have a large selection of campers available, great customer service, and competitive rates. When you use my code iceland7, you save 7% and get two free duvets with your GO Campers van rental. Pros of Renting a Camper Van in Iceland 1. Save Money: Renting a camper van can be more cost-effective than constantly checking into hotels or guesthouses every night. By having your accommodation on wheels, you can reduce the expenses of your trip significantly.2. Travel Flexibility: One of the greatest joys of a camper van is the freedom it offers. You're not bound by hotel check-in/check-out times, and you can decide to stay longer in a place you love or move on if you're ready for a change of scenery.3. Icelandic Campsites: While this can also be a con (more on that later), many of Iceland's campsites are situated in breathtaking locations. Waking up to a waterfall, geysers, or vast landscapes can be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I recommend using the website tjalda.is to find campsites in Iceland.4. Variety of Camper Vans: Whether you're traveling solo, as a couple, or with a family, there's a camper van to fit your needs. From basic models to luxurious ones with all amenities, the choices are plentiful.5. So Many Places to Explore: Iceland is replete with natural wonders, from the Blue Lagoon to the colorful mountains in the Icelandic highlands. With a camper van, you have the convenience of stopping at off-the-beaten-path locations, making your trip even more memorable.6. What Comes with a Camper Van: Most camper vans come equipped with cooking facilities, bedding, and sometimes even Wi-Fi. This means less to pack and a more comfortable journey overall. A heater, electric cooler, a sink and different amenities are available on what kind of van you choose. Cons of Renting a Camper Van in Iceland 1. Icelandic Campsites: Here's the flip side – not all campsites are created equal. Some might be crowded, especially during peak tourist season, and may lack essential facilities.2. Using the Bathroom at Night: Most camper vans don't come with a toilet. So, those midnight nature calls can be a bit challenging, especially if you're parked far from campsite facilities or in more isolated areas.3. Extra Camper Van Costs: While the van itself might seem like a bargain, remember to factor in the cost of fuel, campsite fees, and any additional equipment or insurance you might need.4. Icelandic Weather: Iceland's weather is notorious for its unpredictability. Driving a camper van in strong winds, rain, or snow can be challenging. And even if you're not driving, being cooped up in a small space during bad weather can be less than ideal.5. Confined Space: Even the most spacious camper vans can feel tight after a few days, especially if you're traveling with others. It requires a certain level of adaptability and patience. Here are some packing cubes that are so useful to use for your camper van adventures.6. When Campsites Are Open: Not all campsites are open year-round. If you're traveling during the off-season, you might find limited options, which can pose challenges for where you can legally and safely park for the night.

In this episode, we learn about how Painterland Sisters has grown to a 3-million-dollar annual run rate in just under two years of business, how this sister duo proposed a CPG brand as a way to protect the future of their family farm, plus what the term “regenerative” means to them, their farm, and their brand.

A creative-writing professor discusses Icelandic mythology, as told in the Viking-inspired sagas — and how a summer backpacking trek around the island nation helped him understand the role these tales play in Iceland's modern-day culture. Then futurist and Wired founder Kevin Kelly looks back on his journeys to document, over nearly 50 years, many of the traditions and features now quickly vanishing across Asia. And experts share advice for fall travels to England's gardens and stone circles, and for understanding British slang.
