Fencing off the building site
June 2011: The Oseberg building site continues to attract a lot of attention. Groups of every kind including lots of school classes have visited the site and enjoyed a guided tour.
In order to let the boat builders work in peace without too many interruptions, the area has now been fenced in with a simple rope fence.
"Naturally, all visitors are welcome to our building site! Most days there will be one or more guides available to show people around and answer questions. If you are in charge of a group that wants guiding, please get in touch with me to find a suitable time,” says Einar Chr. Erlingsen, chair of the board, adding that more volunteer guides are also welcome!
