Reconstructed Villages at Lejre

Reconstructed Villages at Lejre Ancient Places and/or Civilizations Legends and Legendary People World History Geography

While scholars have archeological information for many towns and villages in western Denmark, less evidence is available for eastern Denmark.  Although settlements have been discovered, historians are not exactly sure how villages were organized in those long-ago days. 

On the island of Zealand, where Roskilde is located, only a few excavations have revealed how typical farms and settlements appeared during the Iron Age.

This reconstructed village gives us some idea of how the landscape and villages may have looked in the area of Sagnlandet Lejre.
