A citate:[edit]

"The saga begins with the semi-mythical capture of the islands by the King of Norway before moving on to more factual matters."

May I ask why the first three chapters always have been seen as a non-trueish text?

Names of months[edit]

You know, thorsmonth and goimonth are neither Swedish nor Norwegian. It's torsmånad and göjemånad in Swedish and probably something similar in Norwegian. Bo Lindbergh 08:00, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

Name of the man[edit]

I believe the link for Ragnvald, Earl of Moer, goes to the wrong article. There are two historical Ragnvald, better check these. Finn Bjo
