Deconstructing Norway: A tune for travel, on backroads and byways
LILLEHAMMER, Norway - The visitors touring Maihaugen Heritage Village were itching with curiosity. They'd wandered the site's narrow lanes and peered inside the 200-year-old log cabins. They'd explored the craft shops and traditional hand-hewn barns brought from far-flung farms and forests and reassembled here, under the trees. Now they wanted to know if any of Norway's leading figures - statesmen, film makers, painters or artists - had their roots in these humble huts.
