A ruin endangered by road construction in Siglufjörður was fully excavated. The investigation revealed a structure, most likely an enclosure, divided in two. It is interpreted as "stekkur", a sheepfold used in the springtime to seperate the lambs from the ewes. No dating was established but it is pointed out that the ruin is in the land of Ráeyri, a farm demolished by a landslide in 1830. Additionally a trench was excavated through the wall of another ruin, also considered in danger. No dating was established and the ruin is possibly a haystorage.
