Six trial trenches were dug in Búðatangi in Hrísey, Eyjafjörður, in advance of construction work. Ruins and earthworks were visible on the surface prior to excavation. Some trenches revealed remains from the 20th century, f.ex. remains of concrete floors. The visible earthworks are thought to be remains of 20th century construction work. No remains of booths were found and it is possible that the place-name points to structures which were timber built and completely removed after they fell out of use.
