Image of Nancy Marie BrownNancy Marie Brown writes about Iceland and Vikings, science and sagas. Her books combine extremes: medieval literature and modern archaeology, myths and facts. They ask, What have we overlooked? What have we forgotten? Whose history must not be lost?

The author of six general interest books and one young adult novel, she lives on a farm in Lyndon, Vermont and spends part of each summer in Iceland leading history and horseback tours.
