01) Viking Grave Found On A Mountain


“Hjörleifur Hróðmarsson, the blood brother of Ingólfur Arnarson who was Iceland’s first Viking settler in around 874 AD. Hjörleifur was the second settler of Iceland, but sadly enough he was killed the year after in 875 AD.

Hjörleifshöfði is a 221 m-high (725 Ft high) inselberg in southern Iceland. It consists of palagonite. The mountain is located on the Mýrdalssandur outwash plain about 15 km east of Vík í Mýrdal, and was an island in the Atlantic Ocean.”
