Archeology and history

The placement of the reconstructed quarter of the castle is exactly the same as it was during the Viking Age. The traces of the logs were so clear in the ground during the archaeological excavation of the area that the archaeologists could document them carefully. However, the site hides a history that extends far beyond the Viking Age.
