Welcome to Fjörn's Hall!

What's that?

Fjörn's Hall is a place where we explore the medieval North through its sagas, sharing stories both old and new with our fellowship of guests. As a result, this Hall is both a resource and a gathering place for people who are passionate about the history and culture of the Norse world. While a Companion of the Hall, you will not only enjoy good mead and stories by the hearthside, but also a wide variety of informative resources put together by a graduate student with magical powers.

Who's Fjörn?

Although the name Fjörn complements this blog’s Norse aesthetic far better, my real name is Steven Dunn (which is very boring in comparison). I’m currently a medievalist at the University of South Florida pursing an M.A. in History and working as a Graduate Assistant. Unsurprisingly, my research focuses on the medieval North, but especially Iceland. I tend to examine medieval society and culture through the stories they told (as well as material culture), so I work a lot with medieval literature (especially the Sagas of Icelanders) despite being a History major. But if you’d like to know more about my academic side, I suggest taking a quick look at my Curriculum Vitae.

If you would like to know more about me as a person though, feel free to read my "About Fjörn" page.

How can you help? Join Fjörn's Fellowship!

If you would like to contribute to the building of Fjörn's Hall, I would gladly welcome you among my Fellowship. Your support would help me write more posts every month, enhance the overall quality of the website (especially by adding interactive materials), purchase new research materials, create new graphics and resources, and much much more. With your support, this Hall will become a gathering place worthy of all the wanderers who need a place to stay and learn.
