Meet a skeleton

Activities for kids and adults

People and animals have been buried in different ways throughout history. Sometimes together, sometimes in separate graves. Come and see what the different burial practices do to the skeletons and hear about what archaeologists do with them.

You can try excavating a skeleton yourself, and take part in a guessing competition, “Traces of the Vikings”.

Guided tours every day at 11 AM on February 12-17.
