Keldur BL04-07-02


The farmstead at Keldur in Rangárvellir dates from the earliest times. Although much modified over the years, a longhouse has survived which dates back to the Middle Ages and is thus the oldest building in Iceland. The farm was occupied until 1946. There has been a church here since the 12th century. In the 13th century, Keldur was home to Steinvör Sighvatsdóttir, much respected in the community and given authority to arbitrate in local disputes.
