An archeological excavation has begun in hillocks that used to be temporary dwellings for fishermen at Gufuskálavör on Snaefellsnes peninsula, west Iceland. The archeologists have to work fast because the remains are being ruined by the wind and sea.
The waves have, for example, washed away 1.5 meters of a hillock that was measured in 2008 and then the wind blows other remains away, Morgunbladid reports.
Very few remains of fishermen’s dwellings, known as verbúd in Icelandic, have been studied in Iceland.
