The Settlement Exhibition
Located in downtown Reykjavik, the Settlement Exhibition is based around the foundations of an old Viking longhouse that are the oldest remains of human presence in the city. “Everyone should try and take some time to visit… it gives an amazing introduction to Reykjavik’s settlement and Viking history,” says Guðrún. Believed to have been inhabited between AD 930 and 1000, the remains are the centrepiece and provide context for the interactive displays that explore Reykjavik’s settlement era. Each room is different, sharing insight about the settlers, where they came from and how they survived through interactive tablets.
