Viking Stave Church

Christian churches were created in Viking settlements starting in the 12th century.
The Anglo-Saxon missionaries worked with native builders to create the distinctive style replicated in this MOC.
The large stones at the foundation of the church were key to surviving the freeze/thaw cycle of Scandinavian winters.

Gorgeous build! The smaller scale works very nicely here, and the stone base looks great :)
