Overview

Farmstead from the Migration Periode (350-550 AD)on the very top of Ullandhaug. The farm is reconstructed on the original archaeological site. Dressed in the style of the time, the mistress and men on the farm demonstrate and describe day-to-day life. Ypu are vely welcoem at Iron Age Farm where you can do several family activities. Children can try their hand at making fire with a fire-steel and flint or at spinning wooll on a spindle. And if you are lucky, you can taste The Lady of the House's freshly baked Iron Age bread.

The interpreters, in Iron Age period costume, do a fantastic job at this unique heritage site. The reconstructed buildings are an exercise in experimental archaeology, as they are built right on the original foundations, excavated decades ago. One gets a real sense of what life...More

We visited here on a tour, it is interesting to look round but can't actually go inside so that was disappointing, worth a visit but if it's bad weather wear good shoes/wellies as very muddy
