Jernaldernaust på Vestvågøy i Lofoten
(Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 1997-06-16)
82 nausttufter på Vestvågøy ble detaljregistrert. Ved hjelp av C14 dateringer, nausttuftenes morfologi, indre lengde og bredde, nærhet til andre strukturer og høyde over gresskant og blæretang ble naustenes datering og hvilke båter de kan ha rommet sannsynliggjort. En gjennomgang av bruksområdene til båtene som naustene kan ha rommet, viser at materialet fra folkevandringstid- merovingertid ...

These structures are located along present and former shorelines, river and stream banks, lakes and other bodies of water. Their openings usually face the water to facilitate boataccess.
Marine Mammal Train Oil Production Methods: Experimental Reconstructions of Norwegian Iron Age Slab-Lined Pits
