Description

The ram is part of Gjesdal's coat of arms, and anyone travelling in the municipality by foot or by car will enjoy both a cultural landscape and cultural artefacts associated with sheep. In a historical perspective, the sheep has also been important for the economic activity. As late as in 1960, the textile industry accounted for 54% of all jobs in Gjesdal. Today we can partake in this element of Gjesdal's history through the woollen mills' factory outlets.
