Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document In this essay Ingimundarson introduces new hypotheses and findings derived from his field ethnographic studies in Svalbarðshreppurm, northeast Iceland which he uses in conjunction with anthropological concepts in the interpretation of medieval Icelandic normative and narrative literature (i.e., the sagas). The author also makes suggestions for the development of an extensive methodological and analytical approach in historical anthropology. Furthermore, he also suggests '…how analysis of social drama and diachronic profiles in the sagas,…can be extended to reveal the character and changes in strategies and relations of production and reproduction in the Icelandic Commonwealth in the context of foreign exchange' (pp. 217-218).
