Viking Door. The Þjóðveldisbær longhouse is a re-creation of a typical Icelandic turf house from the end of the Norse era and is based on the house at Stöng, a short distance away that was covered with ash during a volcanic eruption of Hekla in 1104. As a result, it was better preserved, with more physical evidence extant, than other Norse era longhouses. The excavated ruins are enclosed within a modern building, protecting the site from further deterioration.
