Antique gold necklace found in the West Fjords

A group of archaeologists and university students recently discovered an ancient gold necklace in an excavation project at Vatnsfjördur in Ísafjardardjúp in the West Fjords, the one that lasts for summers and always reveals vestiges of the past.

Vatnsfjördur was established at the beginning of the Era of Establishment which, according to a large number of sources, would have started in the 9th century and later became a house and residence of the chief.

During the excavations, many beautiful objects have been found that are expected to be exhibited shortly.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
