Between ice and fire people wandering in a landscape that shaped them. The first glance may have caught the ice sheet lay and nibbled on Billingen.

Smooth The GLACIAL SEA and Hornborgasjöns freshwater gave plenty of food for thousands of years. The food was later taken from the soil by grazing and cultivation. The landscape set the limits of human conditions and ruled their lives with cultural values ​​and social norms. Nature became more controlled and bemästrad.

Life got new conditions when the metals changing technological developments. If we want to tell in the exhibition. For children with warmth, softness and touch. For the curious facts and objects. To the thoughtful with the same values ​​and issues. But above all, we want you all to take part of the amazing things that people left behind during all those thousandsyears and together we can create interpretations of Västergötland antiquity.

The tension between power men are also daily life for generations of medieval Skarabor.
