Uvdal stave church
Numedal - Norway

Uvdal Stave Church is situated at Uvdal in Nore and Uvdal municipality, which is in the valley Numedal in Norway. The stave church was originally
constructed just after the year 1168, which we know through dendrochronological dating of the pine tree used during the construction. The logs
were not completely dry when the construction took place. The church was made on top of the remains of previous church on the site, thought
to have been made with the use of imbedded corner column technology during the turn of the 11th century. This we know from an archeological
excavation that took place during 1978. Churches made during the 12th century were usually very small, perhaps no more than 40 square meters
in its footprint. They were therefore often expanded, even during the Middle Ages and certainly just before and after the Reformation, which took
place during 1537 in Norway.

The nave of the church was first expanded to the west during the Middle Ages, when the original apse of chancel was also removed and the
chancel itself elongated. Again, during that period, an extra center column was added to construction. The chancel was torn down again in 1684,
when a new and wider chancel was made. This had the same width as the nave. Then, during the period 1721–1723, the church was made into
cruciform. A new ridge turret had to be made, to fit the new cruciform. Later, in 1819, a new vestry was added to the north wall of the chancel.

Christian, are you posted the sames yesterdays slides? Like it!
Hehe, some of the images yes. I made a terrible mistake and mixed two churches into one name. If you visit Nore stave church today you will see that three of the images i posted there yesterday is gone. But now everything is in order, and the images here is Uvdal stave church, and the images in Nore stave church thread is Nore stave church. :)
