Finds of coffins and teeth under Stavanger Cathedral
Archaeologists from the Museum of Archaeology have been looking under Stavanger Cathedral in search of traces of those who lived here before us. A tooth, a piece of a coffin and a small piece of cloth with some hair on it, should give the archaeologists some answers – and maybe more questions.
The Finnøy Polar Bear
Imagine you are 12,400 years in the past. Much of Norway is covered with ice and the present-day island of Finnøy exists as only two small islets. The sea is 40 metres above the current level. A polar bear embarks on a long swim through the icy waters and never reaches land. Some 12,400 years later, the skeleton of that same polar bear is discovered under a basement floor in the village of Judaberg on Finnøy.
Winter holiday is a good time to go to a museum. At the Museum of Archaeology you can see and learn about what the Vikings did during the winter. Free admission for all children.
