Description

''Truso – the legend of the Baltic Sea' is the title of a new exhibition presented in the Museum of Archaeology and History in Elbląg. Until recently we knew Truso only from its name, which was written down by an Anglo-Saxon sailor Wulfstan. In the late 9th century he set off on his most important journey: from Hedeby in Denmark to Truso in the Vistula River estuary. Wulfstan's account of the journey was placed by Alfred the Great in his translation of Orosius' Chorography.'
