The focus is on the home life of the Vikings. The staff is dressed in authentic clothing, providing living history experiences for scool children, guided tours and events for groups, and living history aimed at tourists and other visitors during summer. Surroundings and location Storholmen Viking Village lies just by the lake Erken, next to the museum is an Iron Age Burial ground and Nature Preserve.

Tertius Pictor
Jan Hochbruck
Germany
My portrayal is that of a Roman painter (around 100 CE, urban). My "home base" is Cologne (where I live) and Xanten (where a painter's workshop was found as well as his tombstone), but I have a tent, a mobile workshop and a gallery – and I like to travel and display the proverbial arts and crafts of a Roman painter. The presentation is targeted at children as well as adults; visitors may prepare their own tempera paint and try their hand at painting. A collection of raw pigments illustrates the process of pigment making. There's also a box with encaustic paint which is shown together with its tools and paintings. Aside from this life presentation I offer design consulting as well as paintings "to order", both for Museum Parks like the APX in Xanten and for Living History Groups/Individuals. Feel free to contact me for advice, opinion and help.

In development at the moment is the use of character interactions at an exciting new exhibit opening 2016.
