The Iron Age Farm


Iron Age Farm at Ullandhaug – A glimpse of everyday life in Norway 1500 years ago

The Iron Age Farm at Ullandhaug is a reconstructed farmstead from the Migration Period, circa 350-550 AD.
It is located at the top of Ullandhaug, 3 km from the centre of Stavanger, and it affords a fantastic view of North Jæren and of Hafrsfjord where King Harald Fairhair fought the battle that united Norway into one kingdom around 900 AD.

An archaeological excavation of the farmstead was carried out in 1967-68.
The reconstructed farm buildings were later erected on their original sites.

The farmstead consists of two longhouses, a smaller building, wells, stone fences and burial mounds, positioned as they were 1500 years ago.
Dressed in the style of the time, the mistress and men in the family demonstrate and describe day-to-day life in the Iron Age and provide information about the archaeological excavations and all the ancient relics in the area.

Children can try their hand at making fire with a fire-steel and flint or at spinning woollen yarn on a spindle.

We have an exciting Summer Program this summer.
