Snorri Sturluson was wrong

A new investigation of the cathedral in Trondheim, Norway, has revealed that Icelandic literary hero Snorri Sturluson had been wrong in his documentation of the cathedral’s history.

Sturluson wrote in 1293 that King Olaf Tryggvason, Olaf I of Norway (995-1000), who was responsible for converting the Vikings to Christianity, had been buried underneath the cathedral.
