Ribe Viking Village

A few summers ago I went to the yearly Viking market at the Viking village in Ribe, Denmark! I love these markets and below I captured some moments. 

Maybe you can feel the ambience through the pictures? :)

At the entrance to Ribe Viking Center

Can you read the sign? - In Norse mythology, "Bifrost" is a burning rainbow bridge that reaches between Midgard and Asgard, the realm of the gods.

The Norns - In Norse mythology, the Norns are three female divine beings who have more influence over the course of destiny than any other beings in the cosmos. They dwell within the Well of Urd beneath Yggdrasil, the great ash tree that stands at the center of the universe and holds the Nine Worlds in its branches and roots. They shape destiny by carving runes into the trunk of the tree, or, in some sagas and poems, by weaving destiny like a web or tapestry.

The silversmith - A heavy brooch in a precious metal bears witness to the status of its owner and is at the same time one of the safest ways to store and guard one's valuables. Ribe is generally a very lucrative market, so the silver smith can be found here every day throughout the market season, working with his young assistants.

The Manor farm, 980 AD - The magnificent longhouse is the home to the chieftain and his family.
