Hofsstaðir Historic Park

An impressive Viking-Age longhouse stood at Hofsstaðir from the Settlement period (AD 870-930) until the twelfth century.  The historic park aims to give an impression of Hofsstaðir at that time: turf walls show the outer limit of the longhouse during its final phase, and remains of a large enclosure have been left untouched. Excavations were carried out at Hofsstaðir in 1994-2000. 

Interactive multimedia technology shows what it was like to live in the longhouse, including a 3D computer-reconstruction of the building.
