From Stavnsager to Constantinople

Presented by Museum Østjylland

They travelled far and wide! From Stavnsager to Constantinople tells the exciting and previously unknown story of the relationship between a small village in eastern Jutland and the mighty metropolis of Constantinople 1,500 years ago.

The story is told through the amazing archaeological finds dug out of the earth near Randers and a string of prestigious museum objects coming from museum collections across Europe. Constantinople was the cultural and political centre of the Eastern Roman world, and from here the cultural impact and influence was so strong that it reached outside the Roman Empire and all the way to what is now Denmark.
