Skard

Skard is a farm and church site on Skardstrond. Many of the Icelandic Saga heroes come from here. Amongst them were Bjorn Thorleifsson, governor, and his wife, Olof-the-Rich Loftsdottir.

On the death of her husband by Englishmen in 1467, she is quoted as declaring: "shed no tears for farmer Björn, but gather men to avenge him..." This has become a famous quote in Iceland.

The Skard church was the main church of the area for a long time. The church was rebuild between 1914-1916 and there are many old relics to be found in it, among them a preacher´s stool from the 17th century.
