The Subcarpathian Museum of Krosno and its branch, the Carpathian Troy Archaeological Open-Air Museum at Trzcinica, Poland, are organising an International Conference entitled “Open-Air Archaeological Museums: Reconstruction and Reenactment – Reality or Fiction?” which will be held on 18 and 19 October this year.
Grodzisko Owidz is a reconstruction of an 11th century medieval castle located near Starogard Gdański. The castle, located on the hill above the Wierzyca, River was one of the strongest in the area, and its rise was connected with the strengthening of Boleslaw Chrobry's dominion over Pomerania.
It was probably destroyed in 1090 by the order of Władysław Herman, who at that time destroyed a large part of Pomeranian castles, in order to prevent the Pomorzan rebellion. In spite of the damage, the castle continued to function. During the Swedish Deluge, the fort was used by the Swedes as a camp, hence the popular local name - Swedish Hill.
