If you’ve ever wanted to experience cooking lamb in a hollow in the ground, a three-day long Viking market, or fancied a spot of archery, then now is your chance; yesterday saw this season’s opening of the Iron Age farm.

The attraction is a reconstruction of a farm complex from the time of the so-called Great Migrations, that took place between approximately 350-550 A.D. Apparently, the farm is the only one of its kind in Norway.

Foodies interested in history can sample some “hellekake” – a type of flat bread that is baked on a stone slab – and there will be a chance to taste a herb soup that contains a selection from the farm’s new herb garden one Sunday this season.

According to NRK the new mistress of the house, Inger Horve, hopes that the summer season will bring many visitors. Last year alone saw an all time record of 20,000.

Details of this year’s programme can be found here.
