Overview
Details

About 75m south of Haraldshaugen lies Krosshaugen with its stone cross dating from the earliest Christian period in Norway (about the year 1000). The place has functioned as a Parliament site and the cross may be a monument to farmers who converted to the Christian faith during sessions of Parliament. It is also believed that Christian mass was said beside these stone crosses before churches were built.
