The exhibition “Endurfundir” (Reunion) opens in the National Museum of Iceland in Reykjavík today, presenting the findings of archeological research that were undertaken in places of historical significance around Iceland 2001 to 2005.
The exhibition being set up earlier this week.
The idea behind the exhibition and the exhibition space is based on a reunion with co-European culture in Iceland with the monastery as the center for Christian reflection and cultural work.
The exhibition also includes slideshows from the excavation, audio tours and programs for families.
The project was sponsored by the Christianity Celebration Fund that was established when Iceland celebrated 1,000 years of Christianity in 2000. Excavation is still taking place at many of these sites.
The exhibition runs through November 30, 2009.
