In 2003 a few sites in KŠlfskinn, EyjafjŲrūur, had been surveyed and identified as possible pagan burials. In 2005 two of those were tested by opening trenches across each concentrations of stones. Both areas produced animal and human bones in a total of four graves, some of which were disturbed. No dating was established but the layout of the graves points to pre-christian.
