Dr Matthew Roby, a post doctorate fellow at Háskóli Íslands, talks to us about his research into the Icelandic sagas. In true Halloween fashion we discuss ghost and ghouls, witches and zombies, and learn a little bit about the importance of the Icelandic sagas and what makes them so fascinating for modern audiences.
