The Settlement Exhibition

During the excavation a hall or a longhouse was found as well, from the tenth century.  The hall and the wall fragment are now preserved at their original location as the focal point of an exhibition about life in Viking Age Reykjavík called The Settlement Exhibition Reykjavík 871±2
