The Laughing Dragon

From the point of view of prehistory, Eura is one of the most interesting sites in Finland. Especially the Iron Age is a period of interest in Eura – during the 6th and 7th century, the inhumation cemeteries were in use only in the areas of Eura and Köyliö in Finland. The excavations have provided a wealth of information on ordinary life during the late Iron Age.

The Prehistoric Guidance Centre, the Naurava Lohikäärme (Laughing Dragon in English) is located in downtown Eura. In the center visitors of all ages are welcome and interesting experiences abound. Familiarize yourself with the items and clothing reconstructed on the basis of archaeological excavations, such as the ancient dress of a lady of the house or a man’s cloak.

The store of the Naurava Lohikäärme sells products which are based on the rich ancient findings of Eura. Especially the products of local handcraft professionals are on sale. The selection includes, among other things, a variety of textiles, cards, jewellery, clay pottery and drinking horns. Also, there is literature about Eura’s prehistory available.
