The central topic of this work are the Iron Age runic stones in modern-day Sweden, which are analysed for the first time in relation to where they were originally erected. An interdisciplinary approach first of all considers their archaeological environment, before analysing the inscriptions with regard to their intended site. The second part of the study discusses the function of runic stones, and in particular how this relates to where they were set up.

Change affects everyone and it is no different for Jackson. Living in Area 38 for as long as he can remember, he knows of no better way to exist than under the tyrannical rule of Christopher Stone, son of Stewart Stone from The Nine of The United Governmental Areas, aka The UGA. This all takes a dramatic turn when Jackson finds a red, metal box buried in his yard, filled with illegal artifacts—journals, a Bible, CDs, etc.—that are from a man of whom he has no recollection of: Mica Rouge. The year is 2036 and Mica, unlike Jackson, does know of a better way of life but is torn apart as he sees his country, The United States of America, crumbling from within by group known as The Political Mafia. The Mafia has infiltrated levels upon levels of governmental resources and it is up to Mica and a vigilante group known as The USA Division to stop them and their dark Utopian vision. To their demise, and at the country's expense, The Division fails and has no choice but to watch The Constitution dissolve and transform into The UGA. In a final stand, having not given up hope, Mica and what is left of The Division, give one final fight in Colorado, or better known as Area 38. However, all is lost as The Division is betrayed by one of their own, Stewart Stone. Mica is left with no choice but to hide in exile, leaving what little history he can of himself and the great United States of America, with his wife, long time friends, and newly born son in hopes that they will one day finish what he could not. Jackson, having found this legacy twenty-seven years later, decides to start the war that will end The Nine, and he with an outcast group known as The Raiders, begins his fight with Christopher Stone in Area 38. Filled with betrayal, unity, despair, hope, hate and love Area 38 follows both Mica and Jackson in their attempts to restore what they believe to be true freedom, and where one fails, the other rises to the seemingly impossible challenge.

»Ein isländischer Schriftsteller kann nicht leben, ohne beständig über die alten Bücher nachzudenken.« Halldór Laxness Der Stellenwert, den die Isländersagas im kulturellen Gedächtnis der Isländer einnehmen, ist enorm. Bis heute haben die fesselnden Geschichten rund um die Besiedelung der nordischen Insel nicht an Leuchtkraft verloren: Die Prosatexte aus dem 13. und 14. Jahrhundert sind eine Sternstunde der Geistesgeschichte Europas – und können hier in einer breiten Auswahl bewundert werden. Mit der vorliegenden Neuedition öffnet sich dem Leser ein Tor in eine Welt, die beseelt ist von wütenden Außenseitern, starken Frauen und Rechtskundigen, von Rache, Totschlag und Buße, aber auch von Schadenszauber und Wiedergängern und nicht zuletzt abenteuerlichen Reisen in ferne Länder. Die Isländersagas sind Weltliteratur. Die ›Isländersagas‹ - vorgelegt von den besten literarischen Übersetzern und angereichert mit wissenschaftlichen Zusatzinformationen - räumen einer der bedeutendsten Literaturen den Platz ein, der ihr gebührt. Mit einem Vorwort der Herausgeber Mit Faksimiles der mittelalterlichen Handschriften Mit Karten der Handlungsorte der Sagas Mit einem Glossar

Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Orkney, Shetland and, to some extent, the Hebrides, share both a Nordic cultural and linguistic heritage, and the experience of being surrounded by the ever-present North Atlantic Ocean. This has been a constant in the islanders’ history, forging their unique way of life, influencing their customs and traditions, and has been instrumental in moulding their identities. This volume is an exploration of a rich, intimate and, at times, terrifying relationship. It is the result of an international conference held in April 2014, when scholars from across the North Atlantic rim congregated in Lerwick, Shetland, to discuss maritime traditions, islands in Old Norse literature, insular archaeology, folklore, and traditional belief. The chapters reflect the varied origins of the contributors. Icelanders are well represented, as are scholars based in Orkney and Shetland, indicating the strength of scholarship in these seemingly isolated archipelagos. Peripheral they may be to the UK, but they lie at the heart of the North Atlantic, at the intersection of British and Nordic cultures. This book will be of interest to scholars of a wide range of disciplines, such as those involved in island studies, cultural studies, Old Norse literature, Icelandic studies, maritime heritage, oceanography, linguistics, folklore, British studies, ethnology, and archaeology. Similarly, it will also appeal to researchers from a wide geographical area, particularly the UK, and Scandinavia, and indeed anywhere where there is an interest in the study of islands or the North Atlantic.
