Jørundgard Middelaldersenter

Jørundgard Middelaldersenter

The medieval farm was constructed for the filming of the novel "Kristin Lavransdatter" in 1994. 16 buildings and a consecrated stave church. The 16 buildings here are reconstructions of houses from Medieval Norway. Guided tours, activities and farm animals. Fun Days Out, Educational Outings. Situated beside the E6 road at Nord-Sel, north of Otta.

In 1991, a project group was organized to work on preparing offers in Nord-Sel in association with Kristin Lavransdatter and Sigrid Undset. There were 15 participants in the course, and together they built the forge, barn, long loft, stable and cookhouse. In addition, Norsk Film contributed by building the “årestue” (log house with an open hearth in the centre and a smoke vent in the roof), cowshed, weaving house, storehouse and a stave church, as well as erecting fences around the entire farm. Also, the “årestue” that was used during the indoor filming in the studio on Jar was notched together on the farm in the summer 1996. Moreover, three trailer loads of props and interiors used in the film were driven up and placed in the houses around the farm, and the outer courtyard was enlarged in 1996-1997 with a pigsty, sheepcote and a house for exhibiting church accessories. The barn was moved from the inner courtyard to the outer courtyard so that it was correctly placed in relation to medieval customs. A new long loft was erected where the barn once stood.
