Mat, makt og myter: reisen mot nord i sagalitteraturen / Roy Tommy Eriksen.

Title: Mat, makt og myter: reisen mot nord i sagalitteraturen / Roy Tommy Eriksen.
Translated title: Food, power and myths: travel towards North in the saga literature.
Author(s): Eriksen, Roy Tommy.
Date: 1996.
Publisher: Tromsø: Ravnetrykk
Language: Norwegian.
In: Ultima Thule. (1996.),
Abstract: North here means North Norway. "Historia Norvegiae", c. 1170, divides region into sealand, mountains and woodland, with detailed description of Saami and their magic. Egil's Saga gives further detail, emphasising interest in resources of sea mammals, birds and game. "Fornaldersagaene" - sagas of olden times - are group describing pre-colonisation era, setting heroic genealogies for known families. Kjetil's family was troll-mixture, with probably Saami blood. In better known sagas same is often implied by "Finnish" (Saami) queen with magical powers. In 900s Torolv Kveldulvsson traded in Finnmark with "Finns" and Kven. Next stages in description of North are from Barentsz's time, then Lilienskiold's survey "Speculum Boreale", 1699.
