The Dirt Road

When we drove to Dettifoss waterfall in 2006, it was along a rough gravel road. A recent article in the IcelandReview reports that archaeological work is being done in preparation for paving the road. Two buildings have been excavated, and the items discovered include a bone comb with an engraved pattern, knives, and a ringed silver brooch. These items are thought to be from the Viking era.

We drove the same road as you. Next time I'd like to go down the other side of Dettifoss. What an incredible experience! Can't wait to hear the reports on the archaeological digs...hopefully there will be photos.
