A fascinating new discovery has been made by archaeologists in Norway. 10 kilometers north of Trondheim archaeologists have uncovered the foundations of a pre-Christian “god temple” that was in use from the 5th-10th centuries.
The site shows evidence of animal sacrifice, and is believed to have been deliberately dismantled and hidden from early Christian invaders nearly 1000 years ago. This is a unique find in Norway, where large pre-Christian ritual sites have not been discovered before.
