"Alstahaug kirke" (5 of 5)
Today the nave from the Middle Ages church is the choir. In this section of the church soap-stone ashlars were also used on the interior, as in the oldest choir. On the north side of the chancel arch there is an altar niche in the wall. A Middle Ages sculptural figure of Saint Margaret, who was the church's patron saint, most likely once stood here. Today it is housed at the Museum of Natural History and Archaeology in Trondheim. A figure of Saint Olav, who sits upon a throne and was made near the end of the 15th century, is also preserved from this church. Today this sculpture is housed in the Historical Museum in Oslo.
