Reconstructions

To create a good historical impression it is essential to study the finds from your chosen time period intensively, in order to recreate them as close to the original as possible. Without this attention to detail the audience will not see an historically accurate image of the past. 

Many of our reconstructions are created after months of research with detailed instructions by specialised craftsmen. Some are crafted by ourselves, if we are able to. 

This is a list of the reconstructions we are especially proud of.
