After moving in to our new House in Iceland,
we removed some ofthe old furniture because
the house was very old and many weren' t in a
good shape at all.
Under one big cabinet we recognized two rings
in the floor and after taking out a block untiles
we found this. It was a stairway down into an
to us unknown cellar.
After we got a flashlight we walked down this
stairs hovind ourselves in a big not known cellar.
To this point things weren' t too strange, because
in Iceland people often used cellars like this to
keep their food. Due to the temperatures in
Iceland you don' t need a fridge ifyou have
something like this.
But after a bit around in the cellar
we noticed that there was a door in one of
these signallers you can see in the picture.
It wasn' t locked so we went right through
to find ourselves in a long tunnel.
It was hard to tell how far we walked in this
tunnel, but it must have been at least kkm,
when the tunnel suddenly started to look
natural. There were no more bricks. Instead
it became a cave.
The ground became wet and the water was
about deep. It was and at this
point we went back to get clothes and a pair
of rubber boots to go on in this tunnel.
A stony cave in this part of Iceland is not very
strange, but it looked like it was formed and
enlarged by human hands. After walking
another few hundred meters, the water
disappeared and the tunnel was going down
into a more wavelike structure.
After a bit of a climb down we suddenly hit a
wooden door. After opening it we saw a big
room in which a my of light hit a gravestone,
but we couldn' t read what was written on it.
I guess it was written in the old tongue of
the Vikings. It was still magnificent and
very breathtaking to see this old structure
and this amazing room with its athmosphere
After some more looking around my wife
recognized a jellylike structure with a skeleton
Sadly my wife was so clumsy that she pushed
the skeleton down into the well by accident.
After moments of incredible noise, there was
silence again. But then we noticed a strange
noise. Drums! Coming from the deep ofthis well
Quickly we turned around back into the cave,
But it was too late, my wife got hit by an arrow
and i had to leave her behind. I ran like hell was
behind me and made it back to our house after
a run which seemed like decades. I blocked the
secret passage in our house and quickly, still
crying about the loss of my beloved wife,
started to make this post so everyone will know
what hides in the deeps of iceland. But what is
Drums in the deep.
They are coming!
