Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapter


This text deals with the final session of the conference Locus Celebris concerning the future of Dalby church, monastery and manor. A round table discussion was organized with contributions from nine participants, all with some kind of relationship to the Dalby complex. The participants in the discussion were an exhibition curator, an IT expert from the Design Sciences Department at Lund University, the city planning director of Lund municipality, the head of the Cultural Environment Unit at the County Administrative Board of Skåne, a landscape historian as representative of the local organization Kulturkvadranten, an historical archaeologist, a representative from the Swedish National Property Board, the Lund cathedral architect, and the dean of the cathedral of Lund. The conclusion was that it is important do develop the site of Dalby on its own merits and to preserve the existing atmosphere, tradition and continuity. The story of Dalby could preferably be visual, and in the future a local visitors’ centre could be established, communicating tourism and cultural heritage aspects of the site as well as the importance of Dalby for pilgrimage and contemplation. In the near future Dalby church, monastery and manor will become an important place for development of archaeological, buildings archaeological, architectural and theological research and education. A project with the aim of visualising and interpreting the baptistery of the church is now starting, and in the future it will make Dalby an important place for developing research and education.
