In 2022, it's 1150 years since the large battle took place in Hafrsfjord. The battle in 872 is important as it is said that this was when Norway was gathered into one kingdom. The battle was led by the great Viking warrior King Harold the fair-haired. The anniversary of the battle, therefore, calls for a celebration!
