Mosfell Archaeological Project: Skeggjastaðir
(click on the images to enlarge)

The Mosfell Archaeological Project is a multi-disciplined international research project that examines human adaptation and environmental change in the Mosfell region of southwestern Iceland beginning in the Viking Age.

The Mosfell Valley (Mosfellsdalur), the surrounding highlands, and the lowland coastal areas are a “valley system,” that is, an interlocking series of natural and man-made pieces that beginning in the ninth-century settlement or Landnám period developed into a functioning Viking Age, Icelandic community.
