Turku Bioscience staff trip to Rosala Viking Village
On may 24th Turku Bioscience staff went on a spring trip to Rosala Viking Village. There were 68 participants so we were quite a bunch. This was a great chance to get our thoughts off work and concentrate on getting to know each other a bit better. Even though the weather was a bit cloudy and chilly we enjoyed our time, and later in the afternoon the sun came out after all.
Rosala is located on an island so we had to take a ferry. As our buses arrived at the terminal a bit early, we had some time to hang out and walk around.
As soon as we arrived at the village we had lunch, fish soup and archipelago bread, in the atmospheric Chieftain’s hall.
The Village itself was quite small but there were lots of activities like axe and knife throwing, and medieval fencing just to name a few.
We got to explore the Viking village with a guide who told us many interesting things about Viking history and culture. The Viking houses were built by a local carpenter and Rosala staff from scratch.
