Midsummer and Betrothal


It's summer. Nature is at its highest, everyone is happy, but something's troubling Alva...


Finally it's summer. On the Hvidinggård farm 980 AD there's yet again an abundance of food. Milk, cheese, eggs, fish, berries and vegetables are being stored in the larder. There's plenty to do in the summer heat. The young girl on the farm, Alva, has her own worries, though. Luckily, she can still rely on her grandfather's help, but this time she's hoping for some advice from Elder Mother, too.

This series of four episodes is about the seasons on a self-sufficient farm in the Viking Age 980 AD. You can explore the reconstructed farm yourself in Ribe VikingeCenter and visit the Wadden Sea which is appointed both National Park and Unesco World Heritage.

The series The Larder has been created with the support of Region Syddanmark and Kulturregion Vadehavet. It's produced by Ribe VikingeCenter in co-operation with Malstrøm.
