Vöktun framkvæmda á fyrirhugaðri álverslóð á Bakka [5.22 MB]
In relation to construction work in the farm Bakki, subject to plans for building an aluminium factory, some machine digging took place and was supervised by an archaeologist. Two sections which showed some cultural activity or disturbance were recorded and planned. Trench 1 revealed the possible remains of an irrigation trench, not dated due to lack of tephra. The second section shows a similar feature, a cut of some sort which later has filled up with midden layers. Some pottery fragments dated to the 19th century were retrieved from the fill.
