Overview
More
Farmstead from the Migration Periode (350-550 AD)on the very top of Ullandhaug. The farm is reconstructed on the original archaeological site. Dressed in the style of the time, the mistress and men on the farm demonstrate and describe day-to-day life. Ypu are vely welcoem at Iron Age Farm where you can do several family activities. Children can try their hand at making fire with a fire-steel and flint or at spinning wooll on a spindle. And if you are lucky, you can taste The Lady of the House's freshly baked Iron Age bread.

This is a fascinating area if you want to learn about Norway's Iron Age history. The longhouse was quite an experience and gave you a real feel of what life was like so long ago.

You can go inside an house which has been rebuilt as we think it was in the iron age. You can try several of their occupations, and the guide have lots of interesting informations.
