I have been working there for 2 years now. We have been expanding a lot the last couple of years - new exhibition on brigdebuilding and water mills and a new wooden church. In Denmark we have archealogical finds from th 10 century of wooden churches and the great rune stone in Jelling tells us that King Harald Bluetoth made the danes christen around the year 960.
This year we have finished a new Haithabu house. They are based on the great finds from Haithabu and we have had both volunteers and crafts men to work on the houses.
The plan is to build two of this type of houses which we can offer to vikings in the summer time and for school classes during May, June and September. The house was startet i april 2010 and eventhough we still need to do some small things it is almost done. And that brings me to the center of why I wanted to make this post.
At the moment we have a archealology student living in the house - for 10 weeks. This projekt is part of here master thesis where she will write about living conditions in vikinge age houses and focus on light, smoke and such. It is a great project and along th 10 weeks there will be 27 different people living with here in the house. In the picture below you can se the first tema before they move in to the house.
We are very excited at Bork to have such a research done on our new house and have therefor made a blog so that you can follow Jannie and the house online.
The project is called "Mennesket og huset" and so is the blog. At the moment the texts is only in danish but I´m considering to make the english as well is a lot of foreign readers starts following the blog. So please let me know if you want an english text.
