|Parent name:||CUNY Strandasysla Historical Ecology Project 1988-90|
|Title:||Gjogur Excavations 1990|
|Abstract:||The site of Gjogur is a substantial farm mound now associated with a small boat landing. Gjogur is historically known to be an early settlement, and the deeply stratified midden deposits sampled in 1990 indicate a long period of occupation. The 1990 season saw a cutting back of a profile exposed by a 1920\'s silage (surhey) pit, which had exposed over 2 m of stratified midden deposit. Note that the 2009 excavation did not reach the lowest layers due to water flooding and the lowest layers have not been sampled. This site would certainly repay more investigation, and additional lab work continues on the remainder of the 1990 archaeofauna. Gjogur appears as a farm heavily engaged in fishing and fish processing.|
