ICELAND – A Sense of Place
presented by Judy Bock
Iceland is a very unique country, based on a rich cultural background of beliefs and traditions and situated on dynamic geologic features. There is the raw beauty of the landscape, shaped by the volcanoes of the Mid-Atlantic Rift Valley and glacial action. The cities are modern and vibrant. The environmental ethic and understandings show how Icelanders are in touch with their land. The geologic features and cities of the southwestern region shape our understanding of Iceland and its people.
