Is it possible that you got the countires mixed up? Urnes is in Norway…
Liked the video though

Thank you. Think I corrected the majority of errors. There are a couple of additional print and narrative errors in the revised video. Let me know if I should just take it down, and re issue it.

Thanks for the history video. Norway’s stav kirker are woodworking/wood carving wonders and well worth visiting.

Here is a photo I took of the Heddal stav kirke we passed on our way home from Sweden last summer. We also passed another stav kirke not far from there near Dale, but I didn’t get a photo of that one.
