Visit to Cesis Medieval Palace garden and artisans. A reconstructed XVI-century kitchen garden has been set up in spring 2015, with only vegetables, herbs and herbs grown in Livonia as early as 500 years ago. Details of the range of plants available in medieval Livonia come from ancient papers and contemporary archaeological studies. Plant residues for analysis are obtained by archaeologists in a wet culture layer, where pollen and seeds can persist for several hundred, even thousands of years. Looking at them under a microscope, paleobotanics specialists are able to recognize which plant species they belong to. The medieval cultural layer has been studied in Riga, Cesis, Tallinn and other castles and cities of Livonia. Craftsmen can be encountered during the summer season on Saturdays and Sundays. Craftsmen's workshops are based on traditional materials and technologies. The wall frame made of wooden fleas is filled with clay clay, the floors consist of stone slabs or compacted earth clone, while the roofs are covered by second-hand tiles. For anyone interested to illustrate the story behind the building, some wall fill areas are deliberately not covered in plaster, showing the wicker mesh and clay clay clay that make up the walls
