Stöng í Þjórsárdal


Þjóðveldisbærinn Stöng (Stöng Commonwealth Farm) is a reconstructed viking-era farmstead in Iceland, located in the Þjórsárdalur valley near road 32 in Arnessysla, Iceland county. It is a historically accurate reconstruction of the three buildings, including a longhouse, which stood 7 km to the north at Stöng; the farm is believed to have been buried under volcanic ash in 1104 following the eruption of the famous Hekla Volcano Iceland.

The reconstruction was built in 1974 as a part of the national celebrations of the 1100th anniversary of the settlement of Iceland in 874. The location has also become famous for fans of the TV-Series Game of Thrones, but a rather gruesome massacre scene in series 4, where all the inhabitants of the farm, except a small boy, were killed by the Wildlings, was shot at this location.
