Ein føroysk bygd

Poul Petersen

The old village was characterised by well-understood rules that governed all affairs, customs and thoughts of those who managed it.

In this work, Poul Petersen discusses every aspect of the Faroese village, from the houses, huts, barns and paths of the village to the patchwork of named plots of the infields as well as the outfields beyond the stony village walls.

How was the village organised?
How were the infields and the outfield beyond kept and divided?
What does the term heimrust refer to?
How were the rights to the shoreline determined?

What privileges came with landed property, and what part of a catch caught on his land would a landowner receive?  

Petersen discusses these and many other issues, from their ancient Nordic origin to contemporary practice. A rare, scientific achievement.
