In the summer 2007 there was an exhibition at Skriduklaustur where the Lagarfljotsormur was in focus. On that exhibition this video was played with the voice of Dagny Indriðadóttir telling the old tale of the origin of the wyrm. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iD-tCcK14E&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL
Few days ago Hjortur Kjerulf, a farmer in Fljotsdalur valley East Iceland, recorded a remarkable video of some large creature swimming upstream in the river Jökulsa in Fljotsdal. That river is one of the main rivers that runs into the great lake Lagarfljot which is just 2 km away from the farmers home. Lake Lagarfljot is famous for begin very deep and for its monsterous wyrm that has appeared there ever since 1345. The video clip has now spread around the world with the question, is this the famous lake monster Lagarfljotsormur, or its baby.
