Gardar is strip of land on the Altanes penisula that has by stroke of fate been spared from any significant development even though it is on the very edge of the capital conurbation. The site hosts remarkably preserved relics of the middleage settlement and is a full-scale textbook of how early society lived in Iceland.

As a cosequence of this project Gardar is now a preservation area.
