Lakstad was a port town located on the west coast of Norway which served as a departure point for Norse voyages and raids via the Atlantic Ocean.

In the year 1003 AD, the town was decimated by Harald Jaekelsson and his crew. After being punished by the King of Norway when the townspeople complained about the theft and livestock slaughtering committed by his crew, Jaekelsson lead his men in raping and murdering every man, woman and child they could find in the town. Most of the town's structures were also destroyed in the raid.

Though a handful of children managed to slip away from the slaughter, it is unknown if the village was rebuilt, or what became of the land after Jaekelsson's attack.[1]
