The route Kirkeveien from Værne monastery/Årefjorden to Rygge church is a very interesting area for find from the Viking age and other historical places, perhaps one of the most exciting in Norway.

In the Moss region there are also many traces from old time. Based on information from Moss kommune`s website, Moss Municipality (www.moss-kommune.no): Cultural Heritage Act of 9 June 1978 No. 50, defines cultural heritage as follows:
"With heritage means all traces of human activity in our physical environment, including sites associated with the historical events, faith or tradition. With cultural environments means areas where cultural heritage is part of a larger entity or context. After this law, it is cultural or architectural valuable cultural heritage that can be protected."

There are several different categories of protection, where protection is the strongest instrument. Heritage from ancient and medieval up to 1537 are automatically protected. Management of Cultural Heritage's not just through the Cultural Heritage Act, but also through the Planning and Building Act of 14 June 1985 number 77 and special laws which are managed by the other sectors including the Conservation Act.

According to Moss kommune`s website, Moss Municipality (www.moss-kommune.no), there are registered archaeological 83 heritages before 1537 in the Moss region. These are automatically protected and subject to Cultural Heritage by the curator in Østfold County. Some of these monuments and sites are:

Moss offers an abundance of trails and paths, but the most exciting is venture out on the off beaten tracks. All around, especially in the forests, there are plenty of tracks from Norway`s oldest heritage. Some are official known, others are known by few and others are just waiting to be found.
