Battle of Wisby – Mästerby

In the year of our lord 1361 the Danish king Valdemar Atterdag, with his army consisting of knights and professional soldiers invaded Gotland and the brave peasants of the island tried to resist but in the end they failed, resulting in thousands of lives lost.

The project Battle of Wisby aims to honour all those who lost their life by reenacting the battles, one at Mästerby and the other that took place outside the city wall all those years ago.
