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.

Very interesting construction!
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!
Yes, and I love seeing the different tools they use, trying to be as authentic as possible.
Yes, exactly! Like the Sea Stallion from Glendalough the royal king hall is becoming part of a research project to great pleasure for all those who are interested in the Viking Age.
