Description

 

History carries traces of thousands of years of mans activity. But not all these traces are visible. Who were the people and what were their stories that over time became hidden; beneath the ground, beneath the surface of the water, under the floor, behind the door, under the paint, behind the wallaper, under a gravestone, behind the place name or behind the document in the archive, in the mine, etc.? Discover all this on European Heritage Day, September 9th.

Description

 

Where is the cultural heritage in our landscape and environment? What can a medieval herb garden, a meadow, school garden and leaf gathering tell about the human use of soil and landscape? What do these places mean for us today? The theme Green places can be told from different perspectives.

 

Production resource

Humans have always tended to use the landscape to produce food and take out the raw materials for different purposes. Different-time farming methods, choosing plants and the need for natural resources has made its mark in the landscape - the forests, meadows and pastures. There are also interesting stories about the buildings and equipment associated with the wild heritage: barns, potato cellar, meadow barns, barn, mills and more.

 

The green such as cultural, social and / or aesthetic function

Knowingly landscaped green spaces in the city and in rural areas, such as parks, herb gardens, cemeteries, gardens, school gardens, allotments and greenhouses.

 

Everyone can participate

All who so wish, are welcome to contribute with activities such as visits and guided tours to which the public will be invited free of charge.

 

On this day the focus is on Sweden's historic environments, cultural landscapes, heritage buildings and sites. The history of these places is also told and illustrated.
