Viking women - Part 1 - Sigrun's wrath and the Discovery of Iceland

52m 00s

Norway in the year 872. Sigrun could be a happy woman. As husfreya (housewife) she presides over an impressive Viking household on the coast, she has lots of children, her husband Ulf commands his own ship. Yet Sigrun’s marriage is an unhappy one. The family is burdened by a dark secret: her husband stole her away from her home settlement during a raid when she was a young girl, killing her father and brother.
