Stave Church

A stave church is a medieval wooden church with a post and beam construction related to timber framing. All of the surviving stave churches except one are or were in Norway, but related church types were once common all over northwestern Europe. The only remaining medieval stave churches outside Norway are one dating to approximately 1500 located at Hedared in Sweden and one Norwegian stave church that was relocated in 1842 to the outskirts of Krummhübel, Germany.

Nice resolution on this one.
