This chapter presents a prehistoric study of Iceland including its conversion to Christianity, the early Bishops, the early priests, and early church building. In the year 999 or 1000, the Icelanders decided at their annual assembly called Alping, to become Christian. The early priest in the country was faced with the task of baptizing the whole population in compliance with the decision to convert. Meanwhile, no churches have been excavated which can be dated to the earliest phase of Christianity in Iceland.
