The photos above shows the old shore line. 2000 years
ago this areas was very fertile and many people lived here. The Teutones
from this area together with the Cimber tribe from Himmerland started to
fight their way South through Europe. First when they met the Roman
army, they were stopped.
Centuries later, during the early Middle age, the inhabitants had
cut down so much forest and other vegetation, and the period with sand
drift started. 300 years it lasted to control the drifting sand. Only
when the large plantations were planted the disaster came under control.
By then towns and
fields had been destroyed to such an extent that the area had become one
of the poorest in Denmark.
