The well-preserved remains of a viking trading post have been found in Norway.

More than 30 house foundations and remnants of extensive handicraft production have been uncovered. The items found have been unusually well preserved due to the dry climate in this region.

Archaeologist Asle Bruen Olsen says to NRK TV that the find is older and larger than those uncovered in other places, and that it will be very important in the research into the early Viking age.
