Ribe Viking Center has received a DKK 10 million donation from the A.P. Møller Foundation, which will fund a planned three year project to reconstruct the early Viking Age harbor and subsequently a wooden church replica of one believed to have been founded by Ansgar.
Authentic Viking construction methods and replica tools will be used. And like the Roskilde Viking Ship Museum project to reconstruct a Viking Age boat (the Gislinge open source project), then this project will also be open for the public to follow the progress. This will be possible both via visiting the center at Ribe, via the internet and upon completion a drama-documentary will be released.
