Welcome to the RVK Newscast! In this episode, Josie Ann checks the National Museum of Iceland to see a very special pair of mittens that have just been dated since settling.
Yellow weather warnings for strong winds are issued nationwide until the evening of Thursday (July 7), encouraging drivers to travel with caution.
The pair of mittens under the control of the National Museum of Iceland has been confirmed to be about 1,000 years old. Very good mittens were dug in Highness near Akranes in southwestern Iceland in the 1960s. Archaeologists at the time suspected that they were from the time of settlement, but until recently this could not be confirmed by modern dating techniques. The mittens belonged to a kid, probably one of the early Viking boats.
In Iceland, 44 people are currently hospitalized for the disease, and the number of Covids is increasing again. Deputy Chief Epidemiologist Kamilla Sigríður Jósefsdóttir has announced that the majority of patients in the intensive care unit are elderly or unvaccinated.
According to a survey, 31% of Icelanders believe in elves. More women believed in elves than men, and older people and rural people also tended to think of elves as genuine.
We thank the staff of the National Museum of Iceland for their expertise and warm welcome!
