Heiðarsel, a deserted farm on the east bank of the river Fjarðará. People lived on the farm until 1980s; it was the home of Þorbjörg Jónsdóttir (born in 1903), wife of the German folklorist Dr. Bruno Schweizer (1897 – 1958), documenting on paper and film some unique discription of the last stages of the Icelandic turf–roofed houses, work, transportation, and many other aspects of daily life in this static time that heralded the end of the ancient Icelandic rural community.
