Preliminary Program
Wednesday, 15 May – Excursion to Roskilde. Members attending the Theory and history Working Group interim meeting are welcome to join the CiNC conference excursion.
Roskilde Museum - Exhibition about Jacob Kornerup In connection with the 100 year anniversary of the death of Jacob Kornerup (1825-1913), Roskilde Museum is holding an exhibition about his activities as a prominent citizen of the town, and also about his contributions to conservation. Kornerup was trained as an artist and worked as a draughtsman and wall painting conservator for the National Museum for over
five decades.

Roskilde Cathedral
Roskilde Cathedral, constructed during the 12th and 13th centuries, is the first Gothic cathedral to be built entirely of brick. It has been the main burial site for Danish monarchs since the 15th century. Since 1995, it has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Viking Ship Museum
The Viking Ship Museum is the Danish national museum for ships, seafaring and boatbuilding in the prehistoric and medieval periods. The museum is built overlooking Roskilde Fjord, where numerous Viking ships were excavated in 1960s and 1990s. These ships, including the longest Viking warship ever discovered, form the core of the exhibition.
