Lost medieval village discovered in Denmark

1 post in this topic



The site of a village described in written sources from the Middle Ages has been found by archaeologists in Denmark.

Traces of three courtyards surrounded by a ditch marks out an area which archaeologists have interpreted as the centre of a village dating back to the Middle Ages at Tollerup in eastern Denmark, reports ScienceNordic.

Historical sources suggest that the farms belonged to the village rulers. A cellar in the largest farm was probably used to store tax revenues in the form of objects collected from the villagers.

“The interesting thing about this find is that we have some very old written sources that [give us] an entirely new understanding from what we can interpret from the excavation alone,” said Gunvor Christiansen, archaeologist at Roskilde Museum, Denmark, speaking to ScienceNordic.
