Archery knows no age

The Viking Museum welcomes fathers and children to a day where we will try our hand at Viking Age archery. The Vikings used bow and arrow both in war – for e.g. to inflict rain of arrows upon the enemy – and to hunt animals such as wild boar, deer, and birds. We know that archery was The Ladby King’s favorite sport, because we have found 45 arrowheads in his grave.

Some think archery is easy and some think archery is difficult, but if we work together and practice patiently, we can all – children as well as adults – learn to shoot arrows before the day is over.

Program – 3 hours: 

10.30 – Welcome at the museum building
10.45 – We visit the exhibition of The Ladby King’s weapons.
11.00 – Stories about and demonstration of archery on Buebanen

13.15 – Championship shooting between the day’s best shooting team and joint clean-up.
13.30 – Finish and thanks for today
