The walls in the Thing-hall in Ripa Town 825 AD are adorned with a 20 m long mural. It depicts the story of the foundation of the town. One of the many figures in the mural is the craftsman Aage, who tragically lost his wife and daughter and then decided to move to Ripa with his son Sven to work on the construction of the harbour.


The story of Aage is just one of many in the mural.
