In the autumn, the Fries Museum presents an exhibition about the High and Late Middle Ages. The exhibition focuses on the former coastal area of the Wadden Sea and the medieval society of Tota Frisia. At that time, Friesland extended from the Zuiderzee to the Weser in Ostfriesland, Germany. In a landscape full of castles, churches and monasteries, the inhabitants chose their own judges, had their own language and a distinctive clothing style. The inspiration for this exhibition is the Fries Museum’s rich but unknown archaeological collection of medieval objects, which will be supplemented with (inter)national loans. With these objects as a guide, visitors will relive the years 1067-1567, from the time of violent feudal societies and wealthy monasteries to the devastating plague pandemic. This major exhibition links up seamlessly with the Fries Museum’s widely praised We Vikings exhibition in 2019.
