Information about ‘Papar’ in English
Q: Do you know of any articles or books (in English) about the Irish hermits who were living in Iceland when the Vikings began the Settlement? I have looked on Amazon and Google, but have not found much there.
I am working on a writing project having to do with the Papar and the Settlers, so anything you might know of would be helpful.
