Guided tour in English -In the woods of Vissefjärda
Antamåla rör, the impressive stone cairn that once marked the border to Denmark. The 11 meter high and 150 meter long cairn evokes wonder even now. Modern science and research have given us the answer to how this awe inspiring cairn came to be. But humans have always had their own explanations to peculiar landmarks in the nature.
We look back on how it was to live here once upon a time. The folklore and legends from a time when people thought it was just as possible to meet a wolf, as it was to meet a troll in the forests. About the gigants and trolls.
Here we cross the border to Blekinge county but som centuries ago this was the country border between Sweden and Denmark. This were dramatic years in history of the people in the cottages here in the woods and villages . We will talk about Nils Dacke, a Swedish freedom fighter and peasant leader from the 16th century, who started a rebellion against the Swedish king Gustav Vasa.
We will talk about the numerous stone walls of Småland, a county known for beeing very rocky. All these rocks were once left here by the last ice age, 14000 years ago.
