The Building Workshop

In the Building Workshop, craftsmen toiled with the enormous quantity of materials used to construct Glimmingehus.

The late-medieval building workshops were rudimentary wooden huts in which craftsmen and labourers could work sheltered from the elements. You can see a reconstruction of one of these huts just west of the castle beyond the moat. Archaeologists unearthed the remains of the medieval building workshop on a site just south of the stone building. The reconstructed hut is used in our educational activities to demonstrate trades such as bricklaying, smithery and wattle and daub.

When the castle was built, the material was processed in the building workshop. Photo: Mats Larsson, CC BY
