Abstract (in English)

The most distinctive feature of the preserved historic towns in the Nordic countries, particularly in Finland, Norway and Sweden, is that most of the houses and buildings erected before the 20th century are wooden buildings. In many small towns as well as in parts of larger towns, historic wooden houses still dominate the townscapes.
