Meeting in Trondheim, Norway in June 2010
The extended committee of the EACD, with guests, in front of
Trondheim's Nidaros Cathedral, with host Lene Landsem, master
cathedral builder (8th from the left).
The church used for Norway's coronations goes back to Olaf
II; it was built entirely of steatite, something especially
fascinating. Details of the restoration were inspected on the
Concrete work experienced up close in the impressive smithy
Moulding and casting techniques as used in practice were
explained in a competent and committed way.
In the Trondheim cathedral workshop, alongside all the other
skills needed to maintain the Nidaros Cathedral, there is, of
course, also a workshop where the glass windows are restored.
In the stonemasons' workshop, the EACD was permitted to sign
a stone which will soon be placed next to the Nidaros Cathedral.
The presentation of the EACD book during the official
reception by the Dean of the Cathedral.
By the water in the centre of Trondheim, an analysis took
place of interesting techniques used during the establishment of
old residential and commercial houses.
