Der er ingen røyk fra pipen. Der er eller ikke spor i snøen. Det er ikke så rart. Her har aldri bodd noen. Husene er flyttet fra sitt opprinnelige sted og hit - til friluftmuseet Maihaugen på Lillehammer.
Det skal vi være glade for. De er rester av et samfunn som ikke lenger eksisterer, det som var basert på naturalhusholdning. Og minnesmerkene etter dette samfunnet blir borte i en stadig økende takt.
The houses in this courtyard are compact and low. Material on rooftops binds them to the ground, the turf in the summer, and snow in the winter. The houses are built of big, coghead logs that gives them more weight and reinforces the impression that they are a part of the nature. A correctly constructed and buildt log house has a exellent properties as human dwellings.
The timber walls has very good insulate properties against cold, they store the heat from the fireplace and are levelling the dinural variations in inside temperature.
There is no smoke from the chimney. Nor are there any tracks in the snow.
It is not so strange. Here, there never lived any people. The houses are moved from their original site to this place - to friluftmuseet Maihaugen in Lillehammer.
It should make us happy
They are remnants of a society that no longer exists, which was based on living from what the nature would give. And the monuments from this society are lost in an ever increasing rate.
By the way "tun" is collecting of houses forming a yard - and basically the same word as "town".
