Glass in the Glow

Kind of Event

Beads shaped in fire
Opening times: 9:00  - 18:00

The Viking Museum Haithabu invites bead makers from home and abroad this weekend. As soon as they have set up their simple clay ovens in Haithabu, they will form glass beads on an open fire in front of visitors, as they did 1000 years ago in Haithabu.

More than 8000 bead finds from Haithabu form the archaeological basis for this experimental work. Visitors have the opportunity to look over the shoulder of the pearl makers and follow the traces of an unusually exciting craft.
