Stone traps

We plan to find and create informational signs about the old stone traps that are found throughout the country. We begin with Westfjords where we are located. 
The stone traps are monuments of the first fox huntings done by the early settlers and their descentants for the first centuries of inhabitance in Iceland. 
The foxes were trapped for the fur that used to be a valuable currency those days but not anymore.
