Remains of Sankt Hans Church

Sankt Hans was a small church located in Roskilde, Denmark The chuch had its own graveyard and was located to the north of Roskilde Cathedral. The chuch was built in 1569 and later closed. The church and graveyard were once again used in 1711 during the plague.

What's left today:
The church was discovered and excavated in 1941-42. Graves inside the church and outside the church were also excavated. The bodies were removed to another graveyard.

The foundations of the church now lie in a small field near the Cathedral. The field is next to a park and beside some houses. The whole field can be visited, but you are not allowed to build anything on it, as archaeologists believe there are still things to be found in the field. Some graves are also believed to still be liying within the field.
