    Norway's Stavkirker, an exceptional wooden heritage


    The Stavkirker (literally: end-wooden churches) are one of the most elaborate examples of wooden buildings in northwestern Europe during the Middle Ages.
    Their definition is due to the particular construction technique: poles or posts (end timbers) are used to support the roof and the elevation of the nave, but also to raise the walls.
