Ruins of Rokoberget church

Rokosjøen is a lake in the municipalities of Løten and Elverum in Hedmark county, Norway.

Rokoberget church ruins (Rokoberget kirkeruin) stand on a ridge south of Rokosjøen. Rokoberget church was dedicated to Saint Michael and mentioned in a papal letter from 1254. It is believed that the church was not used after the Protestant Reformation. The ruin was excavated in 1906-1907. The ruin is fenced with an information board outside the fence. [1] [2]
