Castle discovery fills gap in Danish history

Danish archaeologists believe that the discovery of a 13th century castle on Kattegat Island may help fill a hundred-year gap in the island’s history. The castle belonged to King Erik Menved, who reigned between 1287 and 1319.

Initially, experts from the Danish National Museum thought they had found a small medieval building, but further investigation showed that the remains were part of a much larger complex.
