The characteristic feature of nature in the the upper part of the Eksingedalen valley (so fare only in Norwegian) is the coveted subtlety with which the mountain places obstacles in the way of human settlement.
(Theodor Caspari – 1919)

Here a map from 1816 showing the upper part of the valley Exingedalen, belonging to the military district the “Wossiske Compagnie District af Bergenhusiske Skarpskytterbataljon” under “Norske Jægerkorps”. In this map there are errors on the location of the farms Naesheim, Brakestad and Traefald. Naesheim on the map = Traefald, Traefald on the map = Brakestad, and Brakestad on the map = Naesheim:
