I just had this fantastic idea to invent the word stong, but I wanted to make sure no one had already so I looked it up and this is what Wikipedia said:

"Þjóðveldisbærinn Stöng is a reconstructed viking-era Long house or farmstead in Iceland, located in the Þjórsárdalur valley near road 32 in the Árnessýsla county. It is a replica of the building which stood at Stöng 7km to the north which was buried under volcanic ash in 1104 following the eruption of the volcano Hekla.

The reconstruction was built in 1974 as a part of the national celebrations of the 1100th anniversary of the settlement of Iceland in 874."

I can't really top this, but I'm impressed that I thought of it in the first place.
