Iceland is, as has been well documented, a small island in the North Atlantic. It was settled in the 9th century, mainly by Norwegians and other Scandinavians, but also by a few Celts from Scotland and Ireland. There is a theory that the Norwegians in particular left for Iceland to escape the growing tyranny and expanding power of the Scandinavian Kings, especially King Harald Fair-hair of Norway. The first settler was Ingolfur Arnarson, arriving in 870 AD, and he built a farm on the site of modern day Reykjavik, the capital. Iceland was the first republic and developed a system of proto-democracy with a national Parliament called the Althing established in 930 AD, and a very sophistocated system of law developed. This was surprisingly liberal; women had practically equal rights to men. For instance, they could take part in legal proceedings and declare themselves divorced whenever they wished, whilst retaining all property rights. Considering women only got equal property rights in Britain in the 19th century, this is impressive I feel.more...
The term 'Viking' as an ethnic term is wrong; to the Scandinavians it meant specifically a raider, so not all, or even most, Icelanders were Vikings. Practically all were simple farmers. No towns existed in medieval Iceland, and farms were self-sufficient units.
An Icelander was the first to land on Greenland, which was settled by Eirik the Red after he had been outlawed from Iceland, who called it this to make it more attractive to oth...
According to the October 2005 issue of U.S. News and World Report, Chalfont was rated the 3rd toughest town in all of America. The publishers did not release the names of the top two toughest towns, for fear that the citizens of Chalfont would feel compelled to change things. Never before in the history of mankind has a small town churned out so many superior athletes, dating back to the early days of Mike Pettine C.B. West Football. While the dynsasty formerly known as Bucks Football has faded recently, the dominance that is Chalfont has spread to other areas; from the newly built C.B. South Titans to the quartet of "Chalfont's Finest" that led La Salle to their best season in years. While there are differing views as to why Chalfont has become a hotbed for talent, scholars maintain that it is a classic case of the environment shaping the individual. The toughness of each citizen rubs off on the young ones, and naturally they excel in their respective athletics. Outsiders may contest that their town may be tougher than The Font, but chances are those outsiders have never had a taste of Chalfont's finest dish: THE KNUCKLE SANDWICH.
Last record of conversation with Natalee Holloway:
"Wow that was a great trip, but I need something more exciting. Chalfont seems like a fun place, right?"
