This building was originally built by the Viking founders of the city, back in 914 AD. This building would then go on to form a basis for the Viking Triangle settlement within the city.

From there, the site was used as the centrepiece for the town’s medieval defensive walls which surrounded the city. So, what are you waiting for?
