Three Viking families (Erichsen, Krause, Weber-Janz) move into the houses of Haithabu and live there as they did 1000 years ago. The stews cook in the kettles over the open hearths. The women weave on vertical looms and make elaborate ribbons in board weaving. The men present fur and leather work, build bows and arrows and manufacture all kinds of objects for everyday needs. If you want to know how the children played in Haithabu, you will find a variety of answers here.
