Overview

Spangereid in Lindesnes was home to a number of Viking chieftains.

Spangereid in Lindesnes was home to a number of Viking chieftains. Archaeological finds and excavations have revealed that in the Viking era, there was a canal between Lehnefjorden and Njervefjorden, which went right through what is now the centre of Spangereid. Probably the Vikings built the canal so that they could avoid having to round the rough seas off Lindesnes, and no doubt the canal also provided income and some control over seafarers travelling between the east and west. In 2007 a replica of the Viking canal was “reopened”, making it possible once more to take a boat from east to west without having to round Lindesnes.
