EXPERIENCE HISTORY

The exhibition revolves around the most famous part of the Icelandic Sagas –
The Sturlung Era (1220 – 1264); the bloodiest and most violent era in Icelandic history.

Sturlunga recreated with interactive technology brings to life, in a fasci­nating vision, Iceland’s most dramatic clash of family clans and the fatal civil war that ended Iceland’s independence.

Virtual Reality is a big part of our exhibition. It incorporates cutting edge interactive technology that transports you into the past. There you can take part and experience one of Iceland’s most fearful battle; The battle of Örlygsstaðir first hand. That battle shaped Icelandic history and was the beginning of the end of Iceland’s independence.
