Can anyone recommend good resources on the icelandic commonwealth (I'm talking 9th-13th century before Norweigan domination). Specifcally, the economic and governmental structures are of interest.

Thanks :).

I hope that these will help. Most of these sites are general European History, but I hope this can get you started. Good Luck!
