Monika Lennartsson who works as an authorized tour guide has created this exclusive opportunity to visit the site that is normally not seen.

Monika Lennartsson who works as an authorized tour guide has created this exclusive opportunity to visit the site that is normally not seen. She will take us through rough terrain and talk about this unique excavation and see some of the findings discovered along with other on-going activities.  Due to the somewhat rough terrain, you will need good walking shoes and clothing as we wander into the field in order to reach the excavation site. This event is limited to 16 places and recommended for adults only.

Transportation to the site is by city and regional bus at own expense. Monika Lennartsson and Lisa Andersson will guide you onto the buses and be your hosts along the way.

We will meet at Ekska huset 12.45 latest, thereafter proceed to Lund C to catch the first bus #6 then transfer to bus # 130.

The tour runs from 14:00-15:00. Thereafter, time for coffee and questions with an estimated return time to Lund C 17:30 latest.
