Book: Medieval Visby and Gotland

Chapter: Eplilogue

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.26496


The book ends with a short chapter about how the Middle Ages is used today on Gotland. Since 1995 Visby is a world heritage site, and since 1984 the ”Medieval week” in the middle of August is arranged in Visby and at some other places around Gotland. Apart from a huge ”medieval market” in Visby, the week often includes a reenactment of the Danish conquest in 1361.
