We were at Lejre in week 30
July 23-30 2011

This summer was characterized by loads of rain, but it did not affect us that much. We were cozy in our tent at the marketplace. Erik made some really good tattoos, finalizing with one that was made in the Stoneage with a small flint stone. The centre had Stne Age as a theme the week we were there, so several families lived out there.

Here are some photos from our week:

Eva really wanted to have dip in the pond but thought the mud bottom to be very creepy.

Stone age tattooing
I ended the week in the Stone Age by tattooing a French Archeologist.
Of course I used a flint stone, and she got a fine little petroglyph from the Bronze Age on her leg.
