Long Description:
Set adjacent to one of the entrances to Oslo's Akershus Fortress are what appear to be the foundation stones of multiple buildings. A nearby sign is in Norwegian and reads:

"BYGÅRDER FRA DET ELDSTE CHRISTIANIA 1624-1880
EIENDOMSGRENER ANGITT MED PILER
FESTNINGENS FORSVARSVERKER BLE UTVIDET
I 1700- ÅRENE OG PALISADE SATT OPP

RUINOMRÅDET ER SATT I STAND VED BIDRAS FRA
SPAREBANKEN OSLO AKERSHUS"

which Google, no doubt with flaws, translates as:

"Townhouses THE OLDEST CHRISTIANIA 1624-1880
PROPERTY DISCIPLINES PROVIDED WITH ARROWS
The fort's defenses were extended
In 1700 - YEARS AND PALISADE SET UP

RUIN THE AREA IS SET IN STAND BY contribute from
SPAREBANKEN OSLO AKERSHUS"
