Find the Past
The Thingvellir National Park has many archaeological sites that relate to where people stayed in the area when visiting the yearly Althing, Iceland’s parliament or national assembly, in ancient times. Some of these historic sites are easily visible, such as remains of walls, cairns and old travelling routes, while others lie concealed under earth or water.
Most of the sites relate to Althing, which assembled at Thingvellir from 930 until 1798. People travelled from all over Iceland to spend two weeks of summer at the assembly, where laws were enacted, legal verdicts declared, and disputes settled.
We designed the on-screen experience to be very few, easily manipulatable buttons with a high contrast colour scheme so that whether it is the dark days of winter or the magical never ending sunlit days of summer, visitors are able to easily see and interact with the screen, and start the experience.
