is a historical site and an ancient meeting place in the lower regions of
the Skeid County.
According to the Book of Settlements, Olaf and his wife Asthildur
settled this part of the country.
After her husbandís death, Thorgrimur wooed her.
Her son, Helgi opposed this arrangement, ambushed Thorgrimur and
killed him at Ashildarmyri.
1496 some brave farmers from the area gathered at Ashildarmyri and
protested the Danish oppression and demanded improvement of the
government of the country.
This attempt to improve life conditions in this country counts
among very few such during the darkest period of the countryís
A fenced off grove with a memorial commemorates this event.
