In-depth information about the Thing sites and their history. Thing sites are the assembly sites spread across North West Europe as a result of the Viking diaspora and Norse settlements. Viking-age things were public assemblies of the free men and functioned as both parliaments and courts.
Friends of Thynghowe: Here is our full survey report which has just been published. We are now working to obtain more funding to investigate what appears to be a possible court circle to the side of the 'law rock'. The adjoining area is called Budby South Forest and I am now researching the Icelandic Norse as to Bud (booth) and By (Farm) being a possible indication of a Thing settlement.
