Reconstruction of the court-site
at Vollmoen Steigen. (after H.E.Lund)
The court-site was identified in 1974 and partly excavated in 1985. The remains of four house-dwellings are still visible on the surface, but in addition, several raised areas in the ground surface could be interpreted as possible house-structures. The complex is situated on a narrow coastline 75 m from the shore. Some hundred metres from the site, two boat-house dwellings have been recorded.
The court site is situated on private property and is inaccessible.
