Architecture

The Vikings built in wood which has meant that little has survived over the centuries. However, that which remains allows us to reconstruct their sturdy halls and farms, and the stave churches of Norway allow us to see the craftsmanship that enabled the fantastical decorative carvings that enlivened their basic buildings. Nor were the Vikings only concerned with only domestic building; churches, pagan temples, defensive ramparts and harbour infrastructure are all recorded from the Viking age.
