The findings of Illerup Ådal

Denmark did not exist as a country yet, but warlords fought for land and battles were fought in Jutland, and on Funen and Zealand. You will learn how the foundation of that which we call Denmark was created on the battlefield and how the mighty Roman Empire influenced our ways to fight.

Hear the stories about those who were a part of the battle – the enemy, the villagers, the general, the soldier, the fallen warriors – and finally witness the offering of the weapons discovered at the bottom of Illerup Ådal.
