This church is situated in Rissa in my part of Norway. I have never seen this church before yesterday and I know for the moment very little about this church history. This is a copy of the original church how was building during the time of Duke Skule, about 1180. This is in the end of the Viking period in Norway. Tower on the church show for me a direct link to Russia. Novgorod region was in the time of Viking Gardar kingdom with much Swedish and Norwegian Vikings.
