Keldur

Keldur, the oldest surviving turf building of its kind in Iceland has a long and storied past. It was home to one of the characters in the Saga of Njáll, Ingjaldur Höskuldsson, who lived at Keldur from 974 until around the year 1000, and in the 12th and 13th century, was one of the manors of one of the most powerful clans in Iceland, the Oddi clan
