History Museums South of Iceland

Keldur at Rangárvellir

Keldur is home to a traditional turf house, one of the largest preserved turf farms in South Iceland. The timber frame is a stave construction with decorative Roman-style mouldings. The house also features an underground hall thought to date from the 12th to 13th century and probably built as an escape route during a time of conflict. In addition to this, several farm buildings in the Keldur area have been preserved.
