Figure 1. Plan of the camp of Trelleborg

Trelleborg is divided into two parts (see Figure 1). The inner encampment is encircled by an earthen bank with four gates facing north, south, east, and west. This encampment, 136 m in diameter, contains 16 longhouses arranged in groups of four; the houses have hearths and are made of split logs placed vertically. Outside the bank, on the eastern and southeastern sides, is a ditch. Beyond the ditch there are 15 more longhouses arranged along an arc, and beyond these buildings are another earthen bank and ditch. The camp was apparently designed to serve as quarters for Danish royal troops.
