We anticipate the main focus of the 2019 placement to be on the excavation of the monastery at Þingeyrar. More details soon…



The Erasmus + grant will cover return flights, accommodation, food (3 meals a day, extra food and drink will be funded for by participants), airport transfers and supervision. Participants will have to make sure they have their EHI card and take money for personal purchases and excursions.
