Help us document the 2023 storm surge

We want to document this year's storm surge while the memories are fresh and there are still things that tell about the events. We want to document how the storm surge affects Lolland and Falster, and we need your help. Do you have photos that show the impact of weather and water on your property and the landscape? Do you have a story about the storm surge and its aftermath, or do you have objects that tell about the events or were affected by the storm surge? Then museum inspector Cecilie Bønnelycke would like to hear from you by email:

It is not unusual for a storm surge to expose waste pits and ancient graves on the coastal slopes. They are seen as dark markings at the top of the coastal slope, and below you can find shards of clay vessels, processed flint, animal bones and perhaps a human skull if the storm surge has taken a grave. The storm also washes things from the seabed up onto the coast, and there is a chance of finding wreckage and amber jewelery from ancient times. If you have discovered relics of the past that were affected by the storm surge or if you have found antiquities on the beach, museum inspector and archaeologist Bjørnar Måge would like to hear from you by email:
