Jón Páll Björnsson on the Settlement of Iceland

Jón Páll Björnsson curator of the Settlement Exhibition at Reykjavík City Museum takes producer Helen Shaw on a tour of the exhibition to find out more about the settlement and what it tells us about the people who first made Iceland their home.


He explains the way the Viking society was structured and how he thinks women slaves might have supported both the agricultural and sail weaving work of the community.
