Norway’ history has been shaped by constant changes in the ruling of the country, the harsh living conditions of the people in the very North, but also by proud Norwegians who love their country. The earliest settlements date back to 10,000BC. After the ice began to melt and glaciers shrank after the last ice age, hunters came to Southern Norway from the East and settled along the coast. The rich fishing waters attracted settlers in the North and early settlement were established in areas with possible land use. In the early Christian centuries, struggles between tribes created small kingdoms scattered across Norway.
