World Heritage RørosAbout the website

About the website is a website that digitally presents The Røros World Heritage Site through film, photographs, literature and articles.

The website is the result of a cooperation between the South Trøndelag County Library, Røros Public Library and The Røros Museum. The three partners are responsible for the entire content of the website. Project Leaders: Frode Pettersen and Odd Sletten. The project is supported by, and Norges Forskningsraad at Hoykom. Design, publication solutions and films are produced by Klapp media As.

Photographs and film are presented in high-resolution format and will give best results with broadband connections of more than 2 Mb/s. It may take some time to download these elements with slower speed connections.

Roros World Heritage site is an extensive subject to present. We have made a choice from a wide selection of material. We have also attempted to present the main themes, supported by examples, to illustrate what the World Heritage Site actually comprises and the history, which has made it into a World Heritage Site. We shall be pleased to receive any comments about the website particularly with regard to both the choice of material, and, if there are any errors or omissions.
