About the Society

Jutland Archaeological Society was founded in 1951. Its aim is to promote archaeological research and to make archaeology accessible to anyone interested. For example, by publishing the annual journal ‘Kuml’ and a range of other academic books, and by arranging lectures, tours and excursions.


Mariager Abbey
Hans Krongaard Kristensen

In the Middle Ages, Mariager Abbey was the largest buildings complex in Jutland. Over time, the church was greatly reduced in size and most of the abbey buildings disappeared, and it can be difficult today to appreciate the extent of this once enormous structure. Using evidence from written sources, archaeological excavations and old drawings, the book presents a picture of this labyrinthine Bridgettine Abbey.
