Viking activities on Vikingabyn Storholmen
See and do in the Viking village
During the summer you can watch and learn from Vikings when they do their handicrafts in the village. You meet blacksmiths, shepherds, spinners, and other craftsmen. If you want to try, they teach what they can. Try, among other things, forging, wool crafts, or bake your own flatbread over the fire or in the ashes. The rune master teaches the secrets of the runes, the signs that adorn countless rune stones in Uppland. Hövdingen and Husfrun tell you everything you want to know about the Vikings' lifes .
At special times of the day, a signal is heard over the village. This is the signal that some special activity is starting in the village. It can be a show with Viking-era games, song and music, a lecture or the storyteller tells a story.
