Trondheim is the first capital of Norway, a city with a history of over 1000 years, founded by Viking King Olaf Tryggvason in 997. Archeological research has helped to uncover many aspects of medieval Trondheim life. The remains uncovered during excavations are believed to have been churches and palaces, but there are very few historical sources from the medieval era to further explain the history of the city. What we know for certain is that the city was the nation’s capital, serving as the place where coronation ceremonies were held for Norwegian Kings. Trondheim was, and still is, a famous pilgrimage site.
