Question[edit]

How could a group of monks (all men, I'm guessing) survive in isolation for more than a generation?

Two answers. In the Celtic church, people could marry, and there were hereditary abbacies, and secondly, people may have migrated into the communities. --MacRusgail 14:32, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Ari Fróði- controversies[edit]

Íslendingabók which was written by Ari Fróði around year 1100 and therefore around 250 years after the settlement of Iceland has many controversies in it. this was specially pointed out by the author Árni Óla in his book "Landnámið fyrir landnám". But unfortunately most historians in Iceland see Ari Fróði as some kind of holy cow which should not be doubted. There are so many places in Iceland which names are of celtic origin and even if the viking had slaves of celtic origin with them one can really doubt that they have allowed them to name places in the new land. New carbon dating technology measures give also strong indications that Iceland had at least spread settlement around year 730. That is 140 years earlier than the viking arrival.
