Haithabu was a town situated on the border between Denmark and Germany. This historical city was famous for its trade with Scandinavia. It was sacked by Harald Hardrada in 1050 AD and afterwards abandoned. The town's successor, Schleswig, kept an important position in the Northern European trade networks until 1200. Because of its history and its many Viking findings, Haithabu is a place of high archaeological importance.
