Forsyth says that this Ann Naddodsdóttir was a Faroese Viking. The son Beinir Dróinsson (MacDroan) who raised the grave might be identical to Beinir Sigmundsson who according to Færeyinga saga was the brother of Brestir Sigmundsson who together ruled their own half of the Faroe Islands. They both died in 970. Brestir's son Sigmundur Brestisson apparently introduced Christianity to the Faroe Islands in 999. If this is true Sigmundur was of Christian faith already at birth.
