MIT_Grindbygg_Viking_Finalcut_20130329.mp36.45 MB

In this edition of Moments in Time, we hear about an ancient style of timber framing from southwest Norway called Grindbygg.  A frame was recently completed at North House Folk School in Grand Marais, in a class taught by instructor Peter Henrikson.  It will be erected at the North Shore Commercial Fishing Museum in Tofte in May, where it will cover The Viking, an historic Lake Superior commercial fishing boat built by the Hill family of Larsmont and donated to the museum by fisherman Walter Sve.  Produced by Carah Thomas.
