The Iron Age Farm

She appears to be smiling, but this ewe came right up behind her as she was sitting on a stone wall and bleated right in her ear. The result was her jumping down and forward as quickly as possible!

Lily and I met up with three other women and little boy on Friday, April 25th, to visit the Iron Age Farm about 10 minutes drive from here in Ullandhaugen. It was very interesting to learn about the people that lived here 1500 to 2500 years ago. We made bread over the fire and sat on the sheepskin bunks in the long, low sod houses. There were sheep and their lambs in the fields around it and we took some time to say hello to them. The water is Hafrsfjord.
