The area around Svansele Village holds large, elaborate systems of pitfalls. 5000-6000 years ago, people lived close to the river and their diet consisted mainly of moose. If you want to learn more about the Neolithic period and see how the houses and tools are thought to have been made, we recommend a visit to the Moosepeople Village, a Stone Age village built in 2007. It’s lies just some ​​few kilometers North of Svansele. Here one can see and experience the Neolithic accommodation and food up close.

On land trodden by people thousands of years ago, this camp has been created with esteem and respect for the people who lived under extremely primitive and harsh conditions. The buildings and tools are based as far as possible on archaeological findings, mixed with educated guesses and assumptions based on comparisons with people who lived using stone age technology into the modern age.
