We were lucky as the exhibition about King Magnus Lagabøte (the exhibition is called Miserabiles personae - de svake i samfunnet) just opened 3 weeks ago. Historical place which is worth a visit

There is a small mound here, a (modern) henge-like ring of stones to mark the location, and a tourist information hut but really there is little left of the site where vikings from the surrounding twelve "counties" used to meet as early as 600a.d. But it feels significant to stand on such historic ground, see the surrounding terrain, and imagine the gatherings of clan chiefs, enacting laws and passing sentences. The oldest continuously running ting is in Iceland, since 800, but I believe this is the oldest/first.

It is just a nice, well maintained, roadside stop on the way up the E6 or out to Tautra.

For historical interested this place is a must see if you visit Frosta. Here the vikings held their Thing, which is like a courtroom. Today "Frostatinget" is a circle of stones which are symbols of all the countys near by, placed on a small hill. If you think about boats as the main travel possibility, the Thing is perfectly placed. The inscription on the big stone in the middle says: By law should the country be built and of unlaw it will be destroyed. Frostating was one of two great Things in Norway.
