We travelled to Iceland with a two-part mission: to tell stories from the Viking sagas written early in the country's history in the places where they actually unfolded a thousand years ago, and to settle a longstanding family mystery.
Along the way we delved into stories from four of the Icelandic family sagas: Njál's Saga, Laxdæla Saga, Gísla Saga, and Egil's Saga.
