Geocache Description:


Kippersmuget

Norsk

Kippersmuget, tidligere også kalt Skjoldalsmauet, går fra Ytre Markevei til Strandgaten mellom Claus Ockenssmuget og Holbergsallmenning, ett av flere smau som har dette navn. Navnet, som også har vært skrevet Kyper- eller Kyppersmauet, kommer av yrkesbetegnelsen kyper (av mnty. kûpe, tønne), og viser at det her har bodd bøkkere eller tønnemaker. I 1650 nevnes et Kåre Kippers smau; dette smauet, som senere ble kalt Nordre Schreudersmau, er nå forsvunnet. Kippersmauet ble på 1700-tallet også brukt som navn på det nåværende Klingesmuget.

Cachen kan kanskje, med litt godvilje, minne om en tønne ...




English

Kippersmuget, previously also known as Skjoldalsmauet, connects Ytre Markevei to Strandgaten between Claus Ockenssmuget and Holbergsallmenning, one of several passages bearing this name. The name has also been spelled Kypersmauet or Kyppersmauet ("the Cooper passage"); it stems from the word for the profession "kyper" (from germanic "kûpe", barrel), and shows that coopers (barrel makers) have inhabited this area.

The cache itself might bear some, albeit small, resemblance to a barrel ...
