Would you have survived the Iron Age? Take the Iron Age test!

A fire burns at the hearth, and the lady of the house serves fresh bread (hellekaker)baked on the embers. See, smell and taste what family life was like 1500 years ago in an authentic Iron Age home. The Iron Age farm is a reconstruction of an authentic agricultural site from the great age of migrations (400–550 AD). Get a glimpse of life in prehistoric Rogaland.

Visit the Longhouse and see how people lived back in the day, and listen to some exciting stories about Iron Age life. Guided tours at 12:00, 13:00 (in English) and 14:00.
