The Viking Town
Join us on a trip back in time, to the Viking Age and to the first town in Norway. In twelve short stories, meet children and young people in the town of Kaupang. Following each episode, learn what the facts are and what we can only make guesses about. Look at the exciting things that the archaeologists have dug up: beautiful pieces of jewellery, ancient coins, animal bones, wells and privies – and even a grave, with the remains of what we believe may have been a grandmother with her grandchild.
Unn Pedersen (b. 1973), who is the author of this book, is an archaeologist and an expert on Kaupang. She took part in the excavations at Kaupang.
