The Alþingi ( parliament ( Icelandic) and anglicised as Althingi or Althing) is the national parliament of Iceland. It is the oldest parliament in the world. The Althing was founded in 930 at Þingvellir (” thing fields”), situated approximately 45 kilometres (28 mi) east of what later became the country’s capital, Reykjavík. The valley is expanding at about 25mm per year.

Apparently this is where the first Iceland parliament met. There were dozens of School groups there receiving lectures on their democratic government.
