The Vikings play a big role in Scandinavian history. Also in Ålshult and surrounding area are there still traces te be found. Still today there are diggings and archeologists still find new evidence about how the Vikings use to live and their culture.
Every year there is a group of historical reïnactors visiting in Ålshult. They put up their camp and show how the vikings use to live, eat, sleep and fight.
There are shows, and a viking school for the younger ones. They show how vikings use to make their clothes and dress.
In Ålshult we are going to imitate a original viking village.
On the land behind de the café we have started grubbing up the land. We will start by making a fire place. And try to rebuild a village as historically accurate as we possibly can.
If you are interested, you can follow the proces here on the webside, And on facebook.
It is even possible to get involved in the project, by helping build a bit. When you are interested in this, please contact us!
