Bent E.
Historical fortifications in Tromsø built mid 13th century by Håkon Håkonsen, may even be from the 11th century built by Vikings. Initally built with a moat surounding the buildings. The "fortress" is situated centrally and strategically near the water front of the town of Tromsø, at the narrowest point of Tromsø sound. The seven buildings at Skansen today was biult 1789-1850 as a Customs house. This model is essential for the remaining seven models making up the fortress "Skansen". #Fortress #Middle_Ages #Moat #Norway #Skansen #Toll_site #Tromsoe #Tromsø
