During the age of the Vikings, Trondelag was one of the main centers of power in Norway, and for almost 400 years it was the seat of an archbishopric and a major international city.
The battle of Stiklestad was defining in the Christianization of Norway. King Olav II Haraldsson fell in the battle, and sainted after his death, and Nidaros cathedral was built over his grave.
Each summer the Stiklestad National Cultural Center puts on the Saint Olav historical play, which is a reanactment of the events surrounnding the battle that led to is death. The performance takes place in Scandinavia's largest and oldest open-air theater.
