    THE BUILDING SITE

    by eden_teuling Written Mar 10, 2003

    In the middle of the square is the pillory, complete with handcuffs and ankle chains.

    A wreath of spruce outside the wine merchants' is a sign that new consignments of wine and beer have just arrived from the continent, while Latin chants echoing under the painted arches of the cloisters are a reminder of the time when kings, queens and regents struggled for power and Sweden was still a part of teh Papal sphere of influence.

    THE RIDDARHOLM SHIP

    by eden_teuling Written Mar 10, 2003

    Here too is the Riddarholm ship with cannons, cannon balls and gunpowder.

    You can also visit a medieval building site and see vaulting and other examples of the masons' skills.

    And down by the harbour, the scent of tar and hops mingle with the smells of drying fish and hides.

    INFO MEDELTIDSMUSEET

    by eden_teuling Written Mar 10, 2003

    Situated on the eastern island of Helgeandsholmen with an entrance by NORRBRO BRIDGE.

    The museum has been built around the remains discovered during major archeological excavations here from 1978-1980.

    Today, besides remnants of the city wall from the 1530s you can stroll around a reconstruction of Medieval Stockholm, with brick-built HOUSES, SHOPS, WORKSHOPS and even a GALLOWS by the waterfront.
