Danehof 2014 a great succes

Monday, Monday, August 25, 2014

July 5.- 6. Nyborg once again relived the splendour of Danehof, the Danish medieval parliament, and the medieval court when Queen Margrethe 1. visited her castle bringing along her 7-year old son Oluf - just like in 1377. Knights, soldiers, craftsmen and merchants gathered around the old castle, and the tournament square in front of the city hall once again witnessed  the knights in a melée and a joust with solid lances.

The craftsmen and merchants of the 21st century were to be found in the city streets and at the foodmarket by the church just like they would have been in the middleages, when suppliers from the Kings pantry also were present /events-og-oplevelser/danehof/galleri-2014/

This summer Danehof in Nyborg  had 45.000 visitors and among them two fellow newcastlers from Jaunpils. Kristine Liepina and Inga Krûtaine spent the whole weekend i Nyborg exchanging ideas and thoughts withs us on how to communicate history through events and involvement of volunteers.
