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.
