Memes, memes, memes

Memes are all the hype, and now the Royal Library in the Hague has joined the game.

Kristin Lavransdatter is long on my reading list. I started once and need the patience to finish this big trilogy. But it’s about (late) medieval Scandinavia, so it will happen one day.

This isn’t Viking Age, by the way, it’s the later Middle Ages: both Kristin and Olav take place in the thirteenth and fourteenth century.
