Description

Ruins of a church dating back to the middle ages are found in the basement of SpareBank 1 Midt-Norge. They were discovered during archaeological excavations prior to erecting a new building for the bank. The ruins can be viewed during bank opening hours.

We believe that it was here St Olav's body was kept the first night after it was brought to Trondheim.

During excavation work on the site of the new public library , archaeologists found the ruins of a church which was built in the mid-12th century. Parts of the ruins and a group of well-preserved skeletons from the graveyard can be seen during opening hours in the courtyard between the old and the new library buildings.
