Venue Overview

The Viking age farm Gunnes gård is a Swedish open air museum located in an area with numerous archaeological remains. The site is a reconstruction of a Viking farmstead in the early years of the 11th century. The original farmstead was discovered during excavations at Pollista, not far from the museum.
The site has a unique historic setting, namely two Iron age burial grounds and several runic stones. On one of them is inscribed: "Vibjörn had the stone carved in memory of Gunnes daughter, his wife". Gunnes gård is named after that stone.
