The oldest pure breed — Icelandic sheep have been virtually unchanged in 1,000 years of isolation on the island country of Iceland. Genetically today this breed is the same as it was over 1,000 years ago. Possibly, it is the purest and oldest domesticated breed of sheep in the world currently. The breed has descended from the same stock as the Norwegian Spelsau, which was brought to Iceland by the first Viking settlers in the ninth and tenth century.
