Filming the THING Trail
Published: 01 January 1970
This week, work commenced on developing a THING heritage trail.
THING Project representatives from Orkney, Shetland and the Faroe Islands joined a special cruise by the Smyril-line Norröna travelling from Orkney and Shetland to Tórshavn in the Faroe Islands and the rocky promontory of Tinganes, which has had a political function for over 1000 years, today still being home to the Prime Minister's Office.
Whilst in Faroe we photographed and filmed sites around Tórshavn and at district historic and ancient thing sites, and also captured a performance of the traditional Faroese chain dance aboard the ship.
