A military fortification from the Viking Age may shed more light on the links between Zealand, ancient Denmark and the Jelling dynasty – as well as teaching us more about the period during which Denmark became Denmark,” says Holm.Only a few small parts of the fortress have been excavated so far. “The excavation has already confirmed far more than we dared to hope, but we don’t know the whole story yet.We’ve sent off samples for analysis, and the result should be available in a few weeks’ time. If we can establish exactly when the fortress was built, it will help us to understand the historical events with which it was connected.” Viking ringed fortresses may be the most famous historical monuments in Denmark.They attract tourists from all over the world, and have led to revisions of Danish history on a number of occasions.The discovery could be an important piece of the jigsaw puzzle in understanding the history of Denmark.
