Archaeological sandbox

Tid: All year round during opening hours
Sted: Nyborg Castle

Do you have a thing-finder inside you?

In eastern Funen there are lots of treasures from the past hidden in the soil. Some of them can be found with a metal detector.

At Nyborg Castle, you can play archaeologist and hunt for old coins in the archaeological sandbox. With a real detector, that beeps like crazy when it finds metal. Find a coin in the sandbox and trade it at the museum shop for a gold coin of genuine chocolate!
The archaeolgical sandbox is part of the exhibition “The Changeable Castle”. The sandbox is available every day during opening hours. It is free of charge to find coins.

Almost by a medieval miracle, there was no rain during the Danehof-weekend. The weather reports had looked just as murderous as the knights’ clubs do during battles on the jousting ground. Rain had slashed down all week, and only through a huge effort on the part of the volunteers was the jousting ground ready for the knights on Saturday morning. But then it cleared up, and Danehof 2017 could begin.
