From the 2. july-4. July we tell the story of how imported goods made its way to Denmark from the far east.
Where does the goods and groceries come from in the middle ages? How where they moved from town to town?
During the 3 days we focus on trade and ships. Transporting cargo by ship was by far the easiest way. The ships were faster than wagon and there were a lot of small vessels to transport stuff from one harbour to another.
Sundkøbing has its own small harbour and a few ships. The merchants sail to Lübeck to buy groceries that are not avaliable in Denmark, but also to sell the stuff that are produced locally, like hides and horses.
The ships are being loaded and the merchants are taking orders from the craftsmen of the town. The dyer needs indigo so she can dye the merchants wifes new dress.
Changes may occur.
