"Iceland remained uninhabited far longer than most habitable places on earth. It wasn’t until the beginning of the Viking Age, around 800 AD, that Norsemen began to build ships that could carry them safely out into the North Atlantic. Dr. Gunnar Karlsson was a professor of history at the University of Iceland and is the author of many historical works."
