Purpose of the project:
The Centre expects the volunteers to take an active part in the daily educational work, dressed in reconstructed clothing and acting as citizens of the mediaeval town. Informal training will be provided as needed, and the volunteers may among other things be required to take part in tournaments, demonstrations of siege engines, and similar activities – depending on the personality and abilities of each individual. The work at the centre will provide the volunteer with an in depth knowledge of mediaeval life in Denmark and at the same time it will give the volunteer volunteer the possibility of developing a wide range of abilities and experience within the various areas of activities of the Middelaldercenter. It’s important that the volunteer understand that the work at Middelaldercentret is only practical. We have no tasks in the administration or any academic work to offer the volunteer. In between the activities we expect that the volunteer work with some of the handcraft we show the guests. The volunteer can choose between dying, rope making, sewing or carpeting. The volunteer have the possibility to help prepare the horses for the tournament.
