There are many outdoor museums, reconstructed villages and interactive exhibits around the country where you can live Danish history yourself. The Stone Age Centre at Ertebølle has, amongst other things, the site of a famous Stone Age kitchen rubbish heap (a midden) to explore! 10,000 years of Danish history are brought to life for you at Sagnlandet Lejre (Land of Legends). Here you can picnic amongst reconstructed houses from the Stone, Iron and Bronze Ages and take part in historical activities. At Hjemsted Oldtidspark, on an old Iron Age village, you can also delve deeper into the everyday life of Denmark’s prehistoric people.
