Part of the Earl of Orkney’s estate in Orphir, Orkney. Possibly the setting of Svein Asleifarson’s slaying of Svein Breast-Rope in the twelfth century. According to Orkneyinga saga: Inside the hall on the left was a large stone slab, and farther inside ale casks, both many and large. Opposite the door was the living room. [En er inn gekk í skálann, var á vinstri hǫnd hella mikil, en fyrir innan ǫlker bæði mǫrg ok stór, en í gegn útidurum var stofa.] Orkneyinga saga, ed. Finnbogi Guðmundson, 151-2.
