GROF Egilsstadir

Region: East Iceland
Coordinates: 65.2668743° N 14.3148469° W

Grof is an abandoned farm in County Eidathingha. In 1729, a man murdered his neighbour there by almost cutting off his head in a jelous rage. He was beheaded and his hand was cut off. Both parts were displayed on poles as a warning to the public. According to annals from 1692, five people were found dead, their bodies swollen and the abdomens had exploded. A reverse finned trout was discovered on a plate, and the conclusion was death by poisoning from that fish.
