Fornleifakönnun ađ Útskálum, Garđi [0.30 MB]
Archaeological evaluation took place at the site of the farm mound in Útskálar due to building construction plans. An old truncation (ca. 3 x 4 m) was cleaned and cultural remains recorded. Several structural remains were uncovered, belonging to at least three different building phases. Dating for the different phases was not established but pottery retrieved from the fill dated to the 18th-19th centuries. It was recommended that a larger area would be excavated prior to the construction of a new house.
