Oddstaðir in Hörgárdalur, N. Iceland: Report of the 2009 Archaeofauna.

Author(s): Ramona Harrison

Year: 2012


This report presents preliminary zooarchaeological results from the Viking Age and medieval midden deposits at the Oddstaðir farm ruins. Beyond providing a long term chronology on site management and farm economy, this site has produced faunal remains dating from the 13th to the late 14th c., contemporaneous with those found at the Gásir trading site and also those from the medieval monastic estate at Möðruvellir.

Results from the Oddstaðir faunal analysis are highly valuable and suggest that this farm was established early on during Icelandic Settlement.
