47 meter long viking longhouse found in Borre (x)


Borre in Horten kommune, Norway, has always been famous for its viking burial mounds, and has thus always been assumed to have been a centre of power in the Viking age.
A 47 metre long and 11-14 meter wide (ca. 650 m2) Viking longhouse has now been discovered on the premises. This has presumably been a very large farm in the late Viking age (year 950-1000).

Jotner, Rimturser og Trollunger
As a Norse Mythology student I needed somewhere to put things. So this will be the home for everything between the latest research from the field, my work at an archaeological Iron Age/Viking museum and silliness and pretty things relating to the eras. Oh, and a rimtusse is a form of troll.
