Hringariki, Veien Kulturminnepark (NO)
Hringariki, Veien Kulturminnepark contains one of Eastern Norway’s largest burial grounds from the Early, a reconstructed longhouse and a modern . Excavations uncovered traces of four longhouses dated to the Early Iron Age.
The longhouse was opened in the spring of 2005 and the opened in 2009. During 2011-2012 the number of activities and educational programmes has increased significantly. The most important element of the communication strategy is to bring prehistory to life, achieved by demonstrations at events, a cultural history children’s club, focused on old crafts, and historical role play for school classes.
An essential partner in this work of Hringariki, Veien Kulturminnepark is the “Iron Age Circle”, a sub- group within the local handicraft organisation, Ringerike Husflidslag. The circle’s aim is to preserve Iron Age handicraft techniques, and to bring the Iron Age to life in the longhouse. In 2011 Hringariki, Veien Kulturminnepark was the arena for the first meeting of the Norwegian Forum for which will be repeated here in 2012.
