Tradition says that when a judgment was to be delivered in matters of the thing the judges took a seat on each stone in the ring, also called Nisteinsringen, at the far south of the field.
In medieval times the council moved to Tinghaugene (the Thing Mounds) at the farm Tingvatn.
Here you can find a large stone, called Talersteinen (the Speakers Stone). On one side two steps are carved into the stone. Perhaps the chief stood on this stone when laws or judgments were declared.
On top of Tinghaugen there is a stone shaped like a chair - called Dommersteinen (the Judge’s Stone). Originally there were twelve stones in a semicircle standing around the Dommersteinen.
On the plain Skeiægre between Tinghaugen and Lygne there have supposedly been held horsebattles in connection with the proceedings at the thing.
