Sandur is the old site of the thing where every year the local Várting (spring assembly) was held. Excavations here have unearthed a stave church from the 11th century.

In 1989 archaeologists discovered a Viking period pagan burial ground. The burial included the well-preserved skeleton of a woman from the Faroe Islands in a grave 150cm long. The grave also included three beads of amber, a blue glass bead, and a knife.
