Europæisk Middelalder Festival 
Tolkiens Univers - et ekko af middelalderen

Tolkien's Universe - an echo of medieval times

This year you could experience the fantastic universe of J. R. R. Tolkien.  The festival exhibited approximately 150 unique copies of items from the filming of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. You could among other things see the beautiful hand forged swords, dwell into the details of the knives, bows, sticks, helmets and jewellery and in the impressive hand painted statues of persons and landscapes.  

The collection was bigger than any other collection in Europe – maybe in the world.

Every single object was an incredible piece of craftsmanship, from the man sized orc who with the sword in his hands waits for his prey to the small statues of the figures from the films and the One Ring with all its fine inscriptions.

Tolkien used the medieval times as inspiration for his stories and with The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit he created a universe that has mesmerized readers all over the world for more than half a century.
