4000 year old longhouse found in Norway

Archaeology students working on a summer dig at Alta, Finnmark county in the far north of Norway have uncovered the foundations of an ancient longhouse.
    Believed to be 4000 years old, the longhouse was more than 10 metres long and would have housed 10-12 people. Evidence was found for two fireplaces in the middle of the longhouse.
    Other artefacts associated with the longhouse included flint knives, axes and daggers, and also two possible grave sites.
