Thursday 07.10: Thin bread baking
Friday 08.10: Braiding bracelet in wool and leather, bookmark in leather
Saturday 09.10: Viking pizza
Thin-brush baking and Viking pizza: Children make thin bread in the Viking way, with ingredients available then. They get a small lump of dough that they should flatten out as best they can with them. Then we fry it over the fire. We will also make “Viking pizza” over the fire, the same principle as thin bread baking only that here they also get to choose some filling that they can wear. Children make pizza in the Viking way, with ingredients available then, in the fireplace. Rarely do guests enjoy themselves as much indoors as when they get to enjoy the warmth of the fire and the atmosphere of the Viking world.
In addition, you can experience the archaeological exhibition with unique finds from the area. The children’s travel guides Bædi and Børdi are ready to guide the kids if they want their own trip?. The museum shop is always open when the museum is open. In the chief’s house? which is the world’s largest? it smells of tar and bonfires, there are handicrafts, decorations and exhibitions related to the Vikings worldview/mythology.
