Travel back in time in Hyllestad. At the Millstone Park you can see traces of the distinctive production of millstones, going right back to the Viking period and Middle Ages. The whole family are invited to participate in a wide range of activities. What about grinding grain by using a quern stone, use the flour to make a dough and bake it over the bonfire?
