Description

Seller's Comments and Description:

According to the Book of Settlements, Iceland‘s first discoverer was a Faroese Viking called Naddoddur. He, and other Norsemen brought their Celtic wives and slaves from Ireland and Scotland and settled in Iceland in the 9th Century. But, there is strong evidence to suggest that Irish monks got here first and enjoyed the solitude and tranquility of Iceland to meditate and worship.

Naddoddur and his group did not stay for long and Ingólfur Arnarson is named as the first permanent settler of Iceland. He brought his family, slaves and livestock and settled in Reykjavík. The rest is history as they say, presented in world-class exhibits in the National Museum of Iceland, The Settlement Exhibition.
