The Lawrock - Almannagja

Pingvellir, Iceland

is a gaping rift where two tectonic plates are separating: American and European continental plates
This is where the Althing Council members met and recited the law (which this person would have to memorize). These laws would be utilized to resolve conflicts that occurred. This was at a time when Europe were dominated by feudal lords. 0902_dh.jpg
