Skara in the Middle Ages

Welcome to an open tour of the exhibition Skara in the Middle Ages (Skara i Medeltid). Take a break from the summer sun and join us in the basement of the museum to get an insight into what life was like in Skara in the Middle Ages. As Sweden’s first diocese and one of the largest and most important medieval cities in the country, there is no shortage of artefacts from medieval Skara. In addition to Sweden’s oldest book and piece of furniture, the exhibition includes everything from the bishop’s robes to executioner’s axes. We discuss the rise of Skara, how it came to be one of Sweden’s most important cities and, of course, what made the city lose its outstanding position.
