Archaeofauna from Vatnsfjörður, Westfjords, Iceland lab (lab report)


The Vatnsfjörður archaeological project started in 2003. This report contains results of analysis

of bones from 2003-2007. Analysis has been completed on the material from 2003 and 2004 but

is only partially complete on bones from 2005-2007. This is the second preliminary report of the

archaeofauna from the Vatnsfjörður excavation. Analysis is still ongoing and the results

presented here are by no means final. The Vatnsfjörður material dates to two time periods, the

Viking Age component and the modern farm mound (Milek 2007).
