In yesterday's post I mentioned the use of stones as a building material for fences and walls out in nature. The first of the present pictures shows a small stone cabin that was used for keeping cattle. As you can see, it is mostly built of the stone found ambient in the area, but it also has a roof made out of turf. Roofs made out of turfs were very common in Norway at the time when this cabin was built.
This one is restored and is at situated at Lyngheisenteret (at present without its own WEB-site) north of Bergen. It is dedicated to displaying and preserving the nature and cultivating of the moors that once dominated the western part of Norway.
Outhouse Capital of Canada asked yesterday if we kept sheep in Norway. We do - in the summer somewhat more than 2 millions of them graze the Norwegian grass. Here represented by one of them.
Considering that Norway has about 4.5 million inhabitants, that is not too bad.
