    Back to the Crow. Crows and Ravens are closely related species. I think it was the Viking Rabna Floki (Floki of the Ravens) who used Ravens to find land. If the Raven flew back the way they came, then he sailed on a couple more days before releasing another bird. Finally one flew ahead of the ship (probably a Knor transport/cargo ship rather than a smaller Dragon warship). That meant land was straight ahead so he followed as the Raven (Crow) flies and founded Iceland.

    I'll probably think of another question later. But don't wait for me.
