Borgund Stavkyrkje

Borgund Stavkirke, Norway, by Kurt Muetterties | angioman1: Built sometime 1180-1250 CE (12thcentury). Its walls are vertical wooden boards, or staves, hence the name "stave church" (stavkirke). Several runic inscriptions are found on the walls of the church. One reads: "Tor wrote these runes in the evening at the St. Olav's Mass", and another reads "Ave Maria". These can be found at the west portal of the church. [Please keep photo credit and original link if repinning. Thanks!]
