Snorri Sturluson wrote of Vanlandi in his "Ynglinga saga" (1225) (note that the translator has rendered "Finnland" as Finland):

The even earlier source "Íslendingabók" cites the line of descent in "Ynglingatal" and also gives Vanlandi as the successor of Svegðir and the predecessor of Visbur: "v Svegðir. vi Vanlandi. vii Visburr. viii Dómaldr" [ [ Guðni Jónsson's edition of Íslendingabók] ] .


"Geographical note": According to the article "Skuttunge" in "Nationalencyklopedin", the creek "skutá" passed its name onto the village of Skuttunge and the parish of "Skuttunge". The area does not only contain raised stones, but also 45 grave fields (most from the Iron Age), including a dolmen. The creek is today named after the village.
