All is fine, if it were not for the Danes

The historic camp in Kronhus Park was struck on Friday and everything looked calm. Regular living life can be said as it was in the 1600 century, and then with the Carolines and their adherence, all the way to 1719. Then the problems began. See the pictures!

Everyday business, like selling wooden swords
Children
Philosophers
Relaxed soldiers
Refreshments
Food distribution as in the early 1900s.
1600's surgery
More food. Hash.
Some pirates. Gathenhielm's caperer.
A long awaited dinner
Cozy family life
But then 1719 falls in and a messenger from Queen Ulrika Eleonora rushes into the park. The Norwegian-Danish naval hero Tordenskjold is seen at Vinga, with war ships! Now the cannons must be dragged out of Kronhuset!
Said and done!
And more guns!
And soldiers
And another soldier
... but mostly there was peace and joy in the camp.

This was, of course, a little dramatized. See the program in Kronhusparken for Saturday and Sunday here. Musical highlights are the Göteborg Police Music Year and Wadmans, in front of toned poems by JA Wadman, called the Gothenburg Bellman at the beginning of the 1800 century.

Wadmans interprets Gothenburg's Bellman

Johan Anders Wadman was born in Blekinge and appeared in many places in war and peace until he entered the 1800 century in Gothenburg and made himself a name as a poet. He was described as vibrant, happy, chic and humorous - improvised songs in the cynical sharp-eyed spirit, and was called the Gothenburg Bellman.

Performing in Kronhus Park on Saturday.

The artist group Wadmans has captured 25 of his poems and in front of some of them in Kronhusparken at 17 on Saturday. Musty and skillfully presented stories are to wait. Pictures from Gothenburg's history.

Outwardly, JA Wadman did not go any further. He died poorly at Nedre Kvarnbergsgatan in Gothenburg 1837. The cost of his death exceeded the assets and when people were to celebrate the centennial memory, the grave was not found at Stampens Cemetery with a single wooden cross.

It went better late. After two years of exploration, the grave was found where a five-meter high stone block with a profile picture in bronze was rested. He got a street named after, Wadmansgatan in Lorensberg, and also a statue - which, like its model, had a circular existence. The statue was created by the sculptor Johan Peter Molin, unveiled in Lorensbergsparken 1869, moved 1946 to Kronhus Park, transferred to the City Library 2000 and ended up 2012 on the hill in Vasaparken where the picture was taken. Wikipedia claims it is Gothenburg's second oldest public artwork.

Historic tent camp in Kronhusparken

The idea behind the historic tent camp is to inspire learning and understanding of Gothenburg in a historical perspective. During three days, we give glimpses and smells of everyday life with music, playful life, exercis and play - as it was within the old fortress's moates once upon a time.

The daily activities include baking loaves, bubbling waffles, meeting soldiers, watching fencing, historical fashion show, 1700's medical care, surprises, etc.
Day programs can be found at the entrance to the camp.

The camp is open 17-19 in August
Friday – Saturday at 12: 00 - 20: 00
Sunday at 12: 00 - 16: 00
Kronhusgatan 6-8


Emigrants' Way – Mari & Gilbert (Street theater)

Picture: Isabel Lagos

Over the years 1850 - 1930 emigrated 1,2 millions of Swedes to America. Postgatan, which was called Sillgatan, was the great emigration street with offices, hotels and restaurants for the emigrants.

It's Midsummer and the farm girl Mari has traveled to the big city in hopes of realizing the dream of her life, taking the boat to America and finding her beloved Gilbert. But the two days on Sillgatan before the departure changed everything. Will Mari ever board the boat to America? And what happens to love, can it overcome everything even on the other side of the Atlantic?

Concept: Isabel Lagos and Anette Sundqvist

Searching horse and wagon

Rahmbergs ranch.

Historieverket went south. To Veddige, just north of Varberg, in Halland - and to a real ranch. Where else would you find the right horse and wagon?

Ranch owner Bo Rahmberg shows the wagon, Lars-Göran enters.

Here is the wagon we heard about. Open - with shelter against sun and rain. 20 seats. Swivel chair for the guide. Some modifications is required, but it's undoubtedly interesting.

Check out the hairstyles!

And the horses! Really bad guys. Draghorses draghorses and once Napoleon's favorite. They look wondering but pulling wagons can they say the owner. Two or three in the seals, depending on how heavy it gets.

Found in the barn!

We see one after another in the rancher's bodar. Here a booth from the beginning of the 1900 century. It was assured of the ardenner horses used in thousands in the First World War.

And more horses, for other things. What to do with it all? Not really clear. We are investigating the matter. Have ideas and get a file on them. Ranch owner Rahmberg is definitely interested in finding something.

We leave the ranch and head north again but will certainly return

No ordinary Monday - rumor spreads!

Cecilia Flores interviews Sven Hagnell, Lars-Göran Larsson and Anna Jolfors.

A hectic Monday at the Kronhusbodarna. First came Cecilia Flores from Sveriges Radio (Public Service Broadcasting), and made four live broadcasts from Kronhuset.

Then came Michaela Karlén from GöteborgsPosten – the local newspaper for a reportage. The photographer was struggling to tear off the light and shadows in the winds. Easy to understand. People from the Tourist Office also went on a trip to see what was going on and were not disappointed at all, as it seemed.

Try you too! Bring your camera and follow a tour of the Crown House's exciting story. Sundays and Mondays at 13: 00 and 14: 30. Until the 13 August. More information about the views is available here.
