Drawing of a Viking

Sami Week: Welcome to a lecture on «Tore Hund´s čehporis (leather collar)» Friday February 9!

Várdobáiki Sami Center has recreated Tore Hund’s čehporis (leather collar/trap). The project has focused on Sami presence, society, faith and interaction in the Viking Age. The project is anchored in the National Jubilee 2030 – Norway for 1000 years.

Tore Hund is regarded as King Olav Haraldsson’s groundsman during the Battle of Stiklestad. In Snorri Sturlasson’s The King’s Sagas, a piece of clothing Tore Hund wore during the battle is described, and this was very interesting for Várdobáiki.

We have the pleasure of inviting you to a lecture on Tore Hund’s leather collar / cehporis with Tone Elvebakk from Várdobáiki, Friday 9 February at 18.00 at the Espolin Gallery.
