Fornleifak÷nnun Ý landi H÷gnasta­a ß Fl˙­um Ý Hrunamannahreppi [0.58 MB]
Trenches were dug in H÷gnasta­ir, Fl˙­ir, prior to construction plans. 10 trenches were machine-excavated out of which six revealed cultural layers. Three trenches revealed possibe structures, most likely outhouses of some sort, dated to the early 16th to the 20th centuries - the youngest structure still visible on the surface. One trench contained cultural layers down to a depth of 1,5 m, all later than tephra from 1389 AD.
