In the beginning, there was cod.  It was plentiful, and a source of wealth that, in many ways, built what is now Norway.

Welcome to a web page aimed at exploring the history of Northern Norway through an inquisitive, hands-on approach.  As this site grows, I will be sharing projects, articles on varous aspects of Norwegian history, and open a window showing the climate and nature of Northern Norway through photographs.  Browse the blog Thrums, threads and thoughts for Thora for my latest projects and updates.  Be sure to explore the other links in the header for further projects and documentation resources.

I am a member of the SCA, an international reenacting organization.  For links to more information, see the about page.

Visit my boards for artwork, artefacts, books, and other interesting pins.  I especially recommend the Period is not Perfect board for examples of poor construction, errors, quick-fixes and botched jobs in extant finds prior to the mid-17th c.
