this book showcases Icelandïs large turf houses:
Árbær in Reykjavík, Glaumbær in Skagafjörður,
Laufás in Eyjafjörður, Grenjaðarstaður in
Aðaldalur, Þverá in Laxárdalur, Bustarfell in

buildings ar eunique, Icelandïs remarkable
contribution to the worldïs architectural
heritage. Some of these turf homes were lived
in until well into the 20th century, and most of
them now house heritage museums. They are thus
still in use, and that adds to their value.
Many more turf buildings are to be found in
Iceland, although this bookks focuses only on
few. Icelandïs turf churches are the subject
of a separate volume, Turf Churches. Icelandïs
unique turf-building tradition is under
consideration for the UNESCO World Heritage List.
