The Eidsvoll Building

On 17 May 1814, the Norwegian Constitution was passed in Carsten Anker' s home in Eidsvoll, now known as the Eidsvoll Building. An assembly of 112 men, statesmen, land owners, merchants, officers and farmers worked together to write the constitution of Norway, Europe's oldest unbroken constitution.
