The Centre expects the volunteers to take an active part in the daily educational work, dressed in reconstructed clothing and acting as citizens of the medieval town. Informal training will be provided as needed, and the volunteers may among other things be required to take part in tournaments, demonstrations of siege engines, and similar activities – depending on the personality and abilities of each individual. The work at the centre will provide the volunteer with an indepth knowledge of medieval life in Denmark and at the same time it will give the Erasmus+ volunteer volunteer the possibility of developing a wide range of abilities and experience within the various areas of activities of the Middelaldercenter. It’s important that the volunteer understand that the work at Middelaldercentret is only practical. We have no tasks in the administration or any academic work to offer the volunteer. In between the activities we expect that the volunteer work with some of the handcraft we show the guests. The volunteer can choose between dying, rope making, sewing or carpenting. The volunteer have the possibility to help prepare the horses for the tournament. A typical working day will be from 9.15 am to 16.15 pm and the volunteer will also do occasional work at weekends. However, the working week will not exceed 35 hours per week.
The work in the medieval town is team work, it’s important that everybody can rely on each other, so it demands responsibility to the work and the tasks which is given.
The volunteer will stay with a local Danish host family and will be expected to become part of the family and as such take part in the activities and responsibilities in the family.
We expect the volunteer to be flexible and willing to try different kinds of work. The volunteer must be openminded, curious and interested in learning more about nature and history. The volunteer must like to spend time outdoors, as many of our activities are outdoor activities. The vounteer must be able to speak English at a conversational level and willing to learn Danish (Scandinavian).
It’s important to point out that when the volunteer work in the medieval city no modern things is allowed. Fx no piercings, no visible tattoos, only jewelry which is medieval approved and so on. And no glasses. Lenses are okay. So it’s important that the volunteer can see without glasses or can use lenses.
