The Archaeology of a Viking Age Chieftain’s Power Center in Mosfell Valley, Iceland

April 8, 2022 Eastern Time

TBA (Albany)
Albany, NY United States


AIA Society: Albany

Lecturer: Davide Marco Zori

This lecture examines the Viking Age in Iceland through the discoveries and excavations of the Mosfell Archaeological Project (MAP) in Iceland’s Mosfell Valley. Our work brings together the disciplines of archaeology, history, saga studies, osteology, zoology, paleobotany, genetics, isotope studies, place-names studies, environmental science, and historical architecture. The decade-long research of MAP has led to the discovery of an exceptionally well-preserved Viking chieftain’s farmstead, including a longhouse, a pagan cremation site, a conversion-era stave church, and a Christian graveyard.
