Sigrid's homestead consists of a longhouse, a small klinehus and six bulhus, surronded by a beautiful landscape. The longhouse has a fireplace and enough seats for 60 people. Take the opportunity to hire the whole homestead with enough space for outside activities and cozy events!
The longhouse on Sigrid's homestad is a reconstruction of a farmhouse from the viking age in Skåne during the 10th century. How do we know this? Countless archaeological excavations in the area has given us information and traces from the past. There are no remains from these historic buildings above the ground but the dark stainings in the soil and remains from wood and stone tells us a lot about the construction and sizes of these buildings. Remains from charcoal tells us where the fireplace was located. The family lived in the large house for generations along with their servants and thralls. The longhouse was also the place to hold big parties.
VikingaTider does not offer any food service for bookings of Sigrid's homestead. If this is desired then we recommend that you hire our feasting hall.
