Overview
Details

A Viking Age canal in Spangereid.

Spangereid in Lindesnes was home to a number of Viking chieftains. Archaeological finds and excavations have revealed that in the Viking Age, there was a canal between Lehnefjorden and Njervefjorden, which went right through what is now the center of Spangereid.

The Vikings probably built the canal so that they could avoid sailing around the rough seas off Lindesnes, and no doubt the canal also provided income and some control over seafarers traveling between the east and west. In 2007 a replica of the Spangereidkanalen was "reopened", making it possible once more to take a boat from east to west without having to round Lindesnes.
