The relation of this place with the history shows the Viking's history of this place. The municipalities mainly consist of cities and towns, and a lot of municipalities contain only one locality. However, there are some with no locality at all. These usually share the name. Simultaneously, there could be a locality and municipality sharing their name, but this will not mean that this is a municipality with a single locality.
