2016 Keflavík Cemetery Report Available.

Guðný Zoëga and Doug Bolender have put up the report on the 2016 Keflavík Cemetery excavations.  One of the most interesting parts of the report is Feature 153, which is a series of spade marks up against the eastern cemetery wall.  More about that strange feature can be found on page 9 of the report.
