Iron Age Settlement at Ullandhaug

Share

An agricultural settlement from the period 350-550 AD. This is the only site in Norway where reconstructed buildings have been placed directly on the remains of the old structures. Two of the houses are over 40 m long, and the open hearths have been preserved and are still in use. The area consists of a burial mound from the Bronze Age and a number of gravesites from the early and late Iron Age. There are demonstrations of old crafts techniques and experiments in archaeological research. The farmstead may be rented for private parties.
