The Treasure Madness-Vikings' Heritage Guide

In the history of mankind, most explorers in search of discovery head south. Not Vikings! They set sail to the north, to the over-playful and freezing seas, and arrived on an island, which they named Snaeland, land of snow, then Iceland, land of ice. Only a small Irish Monk community, called "papar", had been present in Iceland for several decades. At the end of the ninth century, the settlement of Iceland began with the establishment of the first village in Reykjavik created by Vikings. Very quickly many communities appeared throughout the territory. For more than 50 years, Norwegian settlers lived as clans, building small villages, until 930, when clan leaders decided to unite and found a free country. To do so, they created the Althing Icelandic parliament, which is the oldest Parliament in Europe. This Viking cultural heritage is still present in Iceland, with "Viking Metal" bands for example, or even museums dedicated to this historical period. Nowadays, the country's policy is different, it’s managed by a president elected by universal suffrage. But it doesn’t prevent the emergence of the Pirate Party, founded in 2012 and which defends ideologies in favor of the welfare-state. Mountains, waterfalls, aurora borealis or even deserts, give to this country a fairytale aura.
