To better get acquainted with the history of the region of Blekinge we visited the archive of the Blekinge Museum.
It holds a large collection of artifacts from household appliances, to tools, textiles, sports equipment and some objects no one knows anymore what they were used for.
Their newest and maybe also oldest artifact is the skeleton of a dog. Because of the consistency of the earth around the dog it has been beautifully preserved. It was buried 8000 years ago next to the entrance of a house. It lay on a bed of feathers and had small gifts laying on top of it's body.
Like Christopher of the Blekinge Museum said: 'As a dog owner I can really connect to these people 8000 years ago, caring for their beloved animal'.
