* Fröjel Discovery Programme: A Viking research project
"The Fröjel Discovery Programme that began in 1998, is a new type of culture-project, i.e. a project with a comprehensive view on the concept Culture Heritage. The project is intended to scientifically examine the Viking Age harbour at Fröjel, but also mediate and make the history of the Vikings on Gotland lifelike. The project is to a great extent a collaboration project between local organisations of interests and businessmen and the world of scientist, with the main interest to develop the district as a place to visit."

* Hofstaðir, Iceland
"The skáli or longhouse at Hofstaðir in Mývatn, NE Iceland, was originally excavated by Daniel Bruun in 1908, with further investigations in 1965 by Olaf Olsen. These excavations were carried out to investigate the Viking hof or pagan temple site suggested by the place-name and historical narratives. Since 1991 the Institute of Archaeology, Iceland (FSÍ) has conducted archaeological investigations focused on the Viking longhouse and immediate areas. The digital archive from the archaeological investigations include a portion of the data from the FSÍ investigations, with downloadable files of the site plans, databases, interim reports, topographic survey and geophysics are available in a variety of dissemination file formats."
