The Mighty Heorot Hall in Denmark

I like to think that the Heorot Hall was placed in Lejre. Heorot Hall explained on Wikipedia
Nevertheless archaeologists have found evidence that Lejre has been a mighty centre of power from the years 500 to 1000 AD.
A reconstruction of the biggest hall which was found, is being built two kilometres from the excavation site.
Click the picture and enjoy the progress of the reconstruction.

    • That is so true and an intriguing task for a craftsman.
      The original hall was 60 meters long, 12 meters wide and 10 meters high. I find it fascinating!

    • I feel the same way but it may not come as a surprise 🙂
      It is wonderful with loads of colours and imagination in everyday life.
