The Longhouse has a cosy atmosphere where up to 40
people get to sit around one of the two long open fires which are
known as Nordic tipi television. The fire fills the silence between
conversations without anyone feeling awkward.
Strictly speaking this isn't a longhouse but it does have much of
the community spirit the original longhouses shared. Here are a
few examples of faithful reproductions of Viking Longhouses based
on archaeological excavations.
