6. Conclusions to Part II
- Vápnfirðinga saga and Þorsteins saga hvíta: the description of Brodd-Helgi and the story of how he got his nickname.
- Landnámabók and Brand-Krossa þáttr: the dream of Hrafnkell Hrafnsson in Skriðudalur. However, Brand-Krossa þáttr has material not found in Hrafnkels saga, which reduces the likelihood that the þáttr got its material directly from any of the known redactions of Landnámabók.
- The Sturlubók redaction of Landnámabók and Droplaugarsona saga: the episode about Ketill þrymr and Arneiðr, the daughter of the earl of the Hebrides. However, Sturla Þórðarson can hardly have been using the written saga as we know it but rather some other written source related to both these texts.
- Laxdœla saga and Gunnars saga Þiðrandabana: Guðrún Ósvífrsdóttir’s reception of Gunnarr Þiðrandabani at Helgafell.
- Laxdœla saga and Fljótsdœla saga: Guðrún Ósvífrsdóttir’s reception of Gunnarr Þiðrandabani at Helgafell.
- Laxdœla saga and Vápnfirðinga saga: the deaths of Kjartan Óláfsson and Geitir Lýtingsson.
