Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone knew of any books that deal with the history of the life of Thorir Hund. His wikipedia page is quite interesting, and includes elements of his life that I don't know of from the sagas. Unfortunately the citations are only to Norwegian language publications.

I'm trying to ascertain what truth there is on the wikipedia page about: Thorir (Tore, Thore, et.) Hund. Any help with english language historical works (journal articles/books/etc) on Thorir Hund is appreciated.

Thanks!

I am not sure where to find books on Thorir Hund himself, even on the Net.

Yes, this is my problem so far.. and everything that is written seems to be only in Norwegian!

For information about Thorir Hund is spread around this work:
The “Saga of Óláfr Haraldsson“ (or “Óláfr hinn helgi“) is in “Heimskringla“ (as 7th saga) by Snorri Sturluson in ~1230.
Link: http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Heimskringla [part 1-8]
Beside this story it's only snippets of information. “Selsbanetåtten“ doesn't seem to have an english translation,
