Crafts andVikings Festival 15th - 16th August 2016

I offer the following information from the Viking Ship Museum to go along with my previous post about the summertime activities at the museum, which is located near Roskilde, Denmark.

Go to the museum's website to view all the interesting events and displays. (Ed.)

More than 1,000 years ago, the Vikings set Scandinavia on the world map. A lust for adventure and their skillful ship technology brought them around the world.

The Viking Ship Museum's festival, 'Crafts and Vikings' offers a unique opportunity to experience and try maritime craftwork: traditions that have been handed down from generation to generation, from the Viking Age right up to today.

For the festival we have gathered a group of skilled craftworkers, who will demonstrate their skills and give the whole family the chance to try their hand at the old crafts.
As something new this year, the festival has also gathered together local organic food producers, who will offer samples of their wares, based on modern interpretations of Viking Age meals.
Come and enjoy an exciting and action-packed weekend, where you can experience, try and learn new knowledge about the Vikings, their impressive ships and traditional maritime crafts from the Viking Age to the present day.
This all takes place at the Viking Ship Museum and on the atmospheric Roskilde Fjord, accompanied by the sound of music.
