Femundshytten -UNESCOS World Heritage
UNESCOS World Heritage
In July 2010 Femundshytten joined the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Røros World Heritage Site was expanded to include the Circumference. This was an area around Røros mining town Røros Copper Works was granted by King Christian 4 to ensure plant availability of raw materials and labor. Femundshytten was part of Røros Copper Works, showing the importance of communities / people and natural resources around Røros was to ensure the operation of the smelter there.
Femundshytten was a small smelter in line with several smaller cabins. It was cheaper / less work to transport some of the ore in the districts where the forest was and "gross melt" it there. If all coal and wood were transported to Røros, there had been several times the load who had to run with horses. Femundshytten is unique among these cabins because it was out in the wilderness far away from settlements and roads, but with the natural resources needed for fusion.
