Bergen history lesson..

Yes we are the Vikings, and we are always ready....
 Noo. I'm just joking.
This one is a replica from one of the many ships we had. It was working by sail or by rowing.
It's named after the King Haakon Haakonsson
In the front, they always put some creatures to scare of the enemy 
This one is not a Viking.
Here name was "Madam Felle" and in the old days she had a bar/pub where people could come and get drunk..
At the bottom of the statue it shows how they believe it was
Back to old history again.
This is the place of the first woman hospital (st. catherine's hospital)
And now at the end we are entering the Bryggen Museum (Harbor museum) 
This is from the old old parts, who was burned down in year 1170
Her is items from excavation and from old buildings in Bergen
Thise one shows toys.
On the right you kan see a early model of a ice skate, there is allso a ball and some other stuff.
This is a model of the old Bergen around year 1200 - 1300
around year 1300 Bergen was a trading center of European importance. The city had between 5 and 10,000, maybe about 7,000 inhabitants, and was clearly the largest and most important in the country. In European standards was a averige big city.
This is one of the Norwegians Kings (Magnus Lagabøte), in old old days Bergen was the capitol of Norway and the place the Kings ruled the country
Thise one shows the clothing and work/home
 This was all for now, hope you found it interesting.
And as usual.

I have a dry period (no alcohol Problem) but from the picturing, autumn is her and the evening darkness comes earlier every day and in the morning it's still dark when i drive to work :-(

At home i have two beautiful girls waiting so i run home as son as possible after work, and after dinner the daylight fade away..
Talking about my girls, our baby is 4 months today and we took allot of pictures for the photo album..
