Iceland Iceland was the last European country to be  settled, mostly by Norsemen in the 9th and  10th centuries. They came mainly from Norway  and elsewhere in Scandinavia, and from the  Norse settlements in the British Isles, from  where a Celtic element was also introduced.  The language and culture of Iceland were  predominantly Scandinavian from the outset,  but there are traces of Celtic influence in some  of the ancient poetry, in some personal names  and in the apperance of present-day Icelanders.
