Fotevikens Viking Village
Erin and I visited a living viking museum the other day. It was the last day of their season before closing for the winter so there were almost no reenactors there. It sits on the site of an important trade center for Scandinavia from roughly 1000 years ago. Reenactors from all over the world are allowed to visit and even live there for free during the summer. They’re allowed to sell their wares for free as long as they stay in character. We’re a little sad that we missed the huge lively viking market, but on the plus side, we had the village to ourselves, and we got to have a private chat with the archaeologist who runs the museum.
