Overview
More
Veien Cultural Heritage Park is centrally situated in the district of Ringerike, just north of Tyrifjorden and Honefoss, is one of the biggest burial grounds from the late Iron Age in eastern Norway. Today the burial grounds consist of 107 barrow graves. Traces from the past tell a much bigger story. In the fields, south of the burial ground, excavations have uncovered several flat graves, cooking pits, fireplaces and four longhouses. One of the longhouses is reconstructed the way we believe houses looked like back in late Iron Age. The burial ground is dated back to late Bronze Age and early Iron Age (ca 900 B.C. to 550 A.C). In June 2009 a brand new museum opened housing exhibitions (permanent and temporary), a cafe and a shop.

The Museum changes some of it's exibitions every other year or so... The long-house is built nearby, and tries to be as authentic as possible...

This is one of the best historical museums in the area coming only second to the Vikinship Museum in Oslo (in my opinion). The exhibition and log house are great and the viking tombs are a fantastic place to ponder. The Museum is only open...More
