Archaeological assessment was carried out in the land of ver, xarfjrur, in advance of road construction plans. Five trenches were dug through two separate bits of boundaries. The two separate boundaries are probably remains of one structure although it cannot be confirmed due to erosion. Both proved to be later than tephra deposited in 950 but fell out of use before the 1262 tephra was deposited. Both were turf built.
