The Seven-Herb Soup


It's springtime. The hunger months have been tough on everybody, and the young girl on the farm has an important job to do...


Spring is an especially tough time for both man and beast on the Hviding Farm 980 AD. There's no food left, stomachs are rumbling and the next harvest may not be for a long time yet. Grandfather is very weak, and while Alva is set to prepare a special soup, Harald makes a big discovery in the barn.

This series of four episodes is about the seasons on a self-sufficient farm in the Viking Age 980 AD. You can explore the reconstructed farm yourself in Ribe VikingeCenter and visit the Wadden Sea which is appointed both National Park and Unesco World Heritage.

The series The Larder has been created with the support of Region Syddanmark and Kulturregion Vadehavet. It's produced by Ribe VikingeCenter in co-operation with Malstrøm.
