Fornleifakönnun vegna vegaframkvæmda
Test trenches were excavated in ruins close to a planned road. The aim was to acquire dating evidence and see if older phases were present. The structure was an enclosure of some sort with smaller buildings, one of them possibly a sheephouse, attached to it. Walls clearly postdate tephra deposited in 1875 an no earlier phases were seen.
