After school, Trond worked as a carpenter for a number of years. He took a foundation course in archaeology in 1987, and has been working within archaeology ever since.
Trond’s first excavation in Oslo’s Old Town was Oslo gate 6 in 1987. He has experience from a series of archaeological projects in Oslo’s harbour area between the early 1990s and 2013, excavating boats and harbour constructions from various periods. These projects included the excavations prior to the construction of the Opera House, the Barcode buildings and various plots along Dronning Eufemias gate, including one of the largest finds of late 15th to early 16th century boats in Norwegian archaeological history.
In addition, Trond worked on the excavation at the Archbishop’s Palace in Trondheim in 1991, and he has worked on archaeological projects safeguarding many of Norway’s stave churches.
Trond has experience from the majority of periods within archaeology, with an emphasis on the Middle Ages.
