Now that summer is starting to fade away and autumn begins the excavation at Alþingisreitur is finishing and the post excavation work begins. A lot of interesting things have come to light during this season, both features and artifacts, and undoubtedly more discoveries will follow during the various specialist research.

Silver bracelet

Written by Hrönn Konráðsdóttir.


A few weeks ago this gorgeous bracelet from 9-11th Century AD was discovered at Alþingisreitur. We just got some lovely photos of it now as it is being cleaned and conserved at the National Museum now. But there is a lot of work left as it is still very fragile and has to be handled with uttermost care.
