Our in-house Viking helps children roll a candle in beeswax during the winter break.
Meanwhile, he shares stories about how the Vikings’ winter was influenced by darkness and how ordinary people couldn’t afford wax candles. Instead, they used fat lamps. You can also see some of those.
If you’re lucky, he might show you how to spin wool, perhaps tell a grim tale, or play his homemade and unique Ribe lyre.
The Winter Market at the Museum Ribes Vikinger opens on February 10 and offers plenty of delicious and creative unique items until Sunday, February 18.
