Introduction to Day of Archaeology in Elbląg :)

We couldn’t wait till tomorrow so we decided to start earlier. 🙂

Truso Team with cooperation of Enthusiasts of Truso Association and Archaeological and Historical Museum in Elbląg has the honour to introduce to you ……


Our brave and sweet and handsome Viking Ghost – OLAF! 🙂


Truso was known only from Wulfstan’s account, who described his way from Danish Haede (Hedeby) to Truso. In 1981 Truso was discovered by Marek F. Jagodziński.


He used to live in Truso – early medieval Vikings’ settlement located in the Slavic-Estian borderland, but he decided to move to our Museum.





Now he sleeps in the reconstruction of Viking hut, and he hopes to find a beautiful ghost girlfriend, because he is really lonely  (oh and he needs new cloak).



Tomorrow we will sail with him through rough waves of Day of Archaeology. I hope that You will like my job as I love it.
