Icelandic Viking Longhouse 1063: Digital reconstruction of Mosfell, Icelandic Viking Longhouse

Research output: Non-textual formArtefact

Abstract

Working with the Mosfell Archaeological Project (MAP) – members of the MAP Project Davide Zori Phd and Professor Jesse Byock this digital reconstruction of the Mosfell Longhouse was developed based upon archaeological and saga evidence.

In 2007, (Scandinavian Section, and the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology, UCLA) was awarded a five-year grant from Arcadia, administered by CMRS, to complete and document the research of the first eleven years of the Mosfell Archaeological Project (MAP), an interdisciplinary research project employing the tools of archaeology, history, anthropology, forensics, environmental sciences, and saga studies. MAP is constructing a comprehensive picture of human habitation and environmental change in the Mosfell region of western Iceland during the Middle Ages.

Using the data that was gathered during that time, we have created a 3D interactive scale model of the site as it would have been around 1063.
