Hedeby – medieval viking settlement
Our viking dress is sewn on the basis of a finding from Hedeby. This historical village in the early medieval period was the largest Nordic town of the Vikings.
Hedeby was placed near the southern end of Jutland Peninsula. Placing it between the narrows of Schlei Bay and Treene river shortened the journey from Western Europe to Baltic countries.
In the old-Nordic language the town was called Heithabu, while in Latin – Heidiba.
