Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. List of later stave churches and replicas. A stave church is a medieval wooden church with a post and beam construction related to timber framing. The wall frames are filled with vertical planks. The load-bearing posts have lent their name to the building technique. Related church types are post churches and churches with palisade walls. All of the surviving stave churches except one are or were in Norway, but related church types were once common all over northwestern Europe. The only remaining medieval stave churches outside Norway are one dating to approximately 1500 located at Hedared in Sweden and one Norwegian stave church that was relocated in 1842 to the outskirts of Krummh bel, Germany, now Karpacz in the Krkono e mountains of Poland.show more
