The “settlement at Sopot” as theis museum is called shwos visitors the results of research done by the Archaeological Museum in Gdańsk into the world of the early Medieval Pomeranians.
It explains about the history of settlement in Sopot, living conditions and daily activities of its people, old crafts, weapons and contemporary ways of erecting fortifications and houses.
What kind of weapons did people use in the Middle Ages (NL)?
Weapons were both used when hunting, in a fight and at war. Many items can be used as weapon, in an impulse, but I think you refer to tools specifically made to hunt with, to hurt or to kill, to threat with or to use in fight sports or tournaments...
Does a narrow water ditch and a wattle fence have any defensive value anyway (DE)?
Yes. One should realise, the potential enemy was under fire of arrows and stones when trying to conquer the ditch and tall fence.
