Millstone Park     Hyllestad Outdoor Museum / Crafts of the Viking Age and the Middle Ages At Millstone Park you can travel back in time to the Viking and Middle Ages – and experience a lesser-known side of this time: the Vikings as skilled craftsmen and traders. Stone was the "gold" of Hyllestad. Stonemasons worked at hundreds of stone quarries, carving millstone after millstone to be shipped out into the wider world. At this time the millstone was a fundamental item. There was no food without the millstone! If you wanted to eat bread or porridge, you first had to grind the grain using a quern stone or water mill in order to make flour. The millstone trade in Hyllestad was a good source of income – for those who owned the land and held the power. At Millstone Park we take you on a tour through the stone quarries. The Vikings toiled here more than a thousand years ago, with skill, sweat, and perhaps tears when yet another stone got a crack and broke. This was a world in which it was very important to be able to make things with one's own hands.  After the tour of the quarries you can also use your hands. You can grind grain, bake bread, make soapstone jewellery, try weaving on a loom or relax by the fire and enjoy something good to eat. Season: 17/6-27/8-2017. Tuesday-Sunday, 10.00-17.00.

Outside opening hours you can explore the Park on your own.
