FYRKAT VIKING FORTRESS EXPERIENCE

DETAILS

  • 41/2
    Stunden Geschätzte Dauer

Gain an understanding of Viking life during the 10th-century reign of Danish king Harald Bluetooth by visiting an ancient fortress and farmstead. Situated on a protected inlet near Viking trading routes, Fyrkat fortress features a classic ring design with four entrances around a circle. Decades of excavations have unearthed walkways, foundations and burial grounds that reveal how the site was used in peace time and when under attack. The replica of a longhouse built outside the earthworks fortress lends a different perspective of Viking life. Similarly, the Viking farmstead nearby depicts the agricultural lifestyle in the Middle Ages. It is an accurate reconstruction of a Viking farm in Jelling, Bluetooth’s hometown. While meandering about, you can observe the costumed staff performing various household chores and cultural activities. You may have the opportunity to sample typical foods that the Vikings ate, such as herring, berries, fruit and porridge.
