Alta is a town and municipality in Finnmark county, Norway, with a population of around 18,000 inhabitants. Though Alta only became a true city in 1999, there are traces of settlement and society that date to 4200 BC in the area. In 1979 there was a demonstration called the Altasaken that happened here where the inhabitants protested the building of a hydroelectric dam, which brought the area to international attention. The dam was built regardless, but the salmon fishing remains as good as ever, which was the main concern.
