Archeologists Excavate Remains at Ancient Parliament

While the site of the parliament in Reykjavík is being excavated, archeologists will continue to search for remains at the site where Alþingi, the Icelandic parliament, was founded in 930 AD, Þingvellir National Park, this summer.

This time around, archeological remains will be searched for and registered at the periphery of the ancient site, as well as in the area between Hrafnabjargir and Ármannsfell, ruv.is reports.
Þingvellir National Park extends over 230 square kilometers. The influx of tourists has increased significantly in recent few years, putting strain on cultural remains. Therefore it is considered a priority to register the park’s archeological discoveries.
“Knowledge of the location and scope of remains in the national park is very important so that they can be taken into consideration and preserved,” the park’s website reads.
This summer’s project is the third stage of the documentation of archeological remains in Þingvellir.
In the spring of 2010, the abandoned farms Skógarkot, Hrauntún and Vatnskot were registered, in addition to the northern coast of Þingvallavatn lake.
Last summer, the documentation of archeological findings within the ancient parliamentary site itself was worked on.
