Chiefdom at Sandnes

The circumstances surrounding Sandnes are one of the best-documented stories from the Viking Age, and by far the most significant saga of our region. The history tells of trade, power, and politics, but also of daily life at the Chiefdom Seat at Sandnes in Sandnessjøen and the individuals who lived there.

We organize banquets, rituals, and feasts in the Longhouse all year round.
