In July 2005 I stayed a couple of weeks in Bergen, Norway, as I was given the opportunity to do some pre-clinical clerkship at the surgery department of Haukeland Sykehus. The following two pages are taken on that trip.


Leaving Trondheim, on board the ferry MS Finnmarken if I remember it correctly.

Around 1350-60 the Hanseatic League established one of its four main foreign trading stations - Kontore - at Bryggen in Bergen. There were probably approximately 1000 people, all male, living permanently in the german colony, a number that doubled during high season.
