Eyva Varda - Eva's Cairn. Monument or navigational beacon named after one of the 'bone women', living on the margins of society and who historically roamed the backcountry of Iceland, spreading news and gossip. They sound like archetypal witches, although the only 'witch' burned at the stake in Iceland was a man. Photo ©MF O’Brien 2017
