Beginning of the sheep letter
  • June 24th : With the Seyðabrævið ( sheep letter ) the Faroe Islands receive their first own constitution. It is the Faroese extension of the Norwegian collection of laws Forn Landslóg , which specifically contains Faroese agricultural issues such as the regulation of the management of the heathland, regulations on sheep keeping and arbitration rules for disputes among shepherds. In addition, the sheep letter also regulates the pilot whale catch. In addition to a mirror of the Faroese society at this time the sheep letter is an important source of finance of the Faroe Islands in the Middle Ages . Many regulations of the sheep letter prove to be very appropriate and therefore permanent. They remain in force for centuries until modern times .
