HISTORY HUNT: Dog poo and Viking bling

Our community with the Viking age is everywhere: in the kitchen, in the living room and in the jewelry box there are things that the Vikings also used in their daily lives.

Find things that point to our community with the Vikings - such as dogs and their poos! You can find some of these in the Vikings exhibition at Ribes Vikinger along with many other great finds from excavations in Ribe town.

The findings tell the story of how the Vikings traded, worked and made fantastic crafts. They also talk about daily life, death and the old Norse faith.


12 February – 27 February

Our large exhibition about the Danish flag, Dannebrog, contains lots of fun details and short stories.

We send all families of to find them.

If you participate in the hunt and answer the questions in the quiz, you also participate in the competition for an exciting prize.
