Evaluation of Archaeological Features at Brekka and Dađastađir, Núpasveit in Öxafjarđarhreppur - Evaluation report [0.36 MB]
Evaluation trenching took place prior to road construction in Dađastađir and Brekka, Núpasveit (NE Iceland) in two sites, several kilometres apart. The trench in Dađastađir revealed a stone constructed revetment, the part of an old track. No dating evidence was found. The results from the other trench were negative, no archaeology was found although a sheephouse in the area is known from written sources.
