How did people live thousands of years ago?
Imagine, that you are an archaeologist, that is, someone who finds traces of and things from the past. Archaeologists are like a kind of detective, as they try to figure out how life was in the past, such as in the Viking Age.

The earth under our feet contains thousands of things that have been left behind by the people of the past. But the sea also hides traces of sunken worlds, which are waiting to be excavated by archaeologists. At our workshop, you can get your hands on history when you investigate the items the archaeologist has found, and combine all the traces to tell a story. What can the skeleton tell us about people in the past and their lives? What event has taken place? 

In our workshop you can also recreate some of the artefacts found by archaeologists during excavations both on land and under water. In the workshop you can:

  • Sew your own leather pouch
  • Make amulets of antler and horn
  • Design jewellery with glass beads

The activities are aimed towards families with children from 5-12 years of age. 

There will be a free guided tour each day for Museum guests at 13:00 (DK) and 15:00 (EN)

All activities take place indoors at the Viking Ship Hall. Some activities require an additional fee.
