Misthusum - a village gone
Misthusum was a small village build in the 12th centurz on 8 hills and contained 12 marchfarms. The village was destroyed by the big flood on october 11th. 1634. The worst ever at the danish west coast. It was called "the giant mandrowing".
44 people drowned including all animals.
Later some of the farms were reconstructed but 1814 the last family left. The only left buildin from the village is the small hut.
To show how high th water stood at the flood in 1634 is here a photo of the flood-pole in Ribe.
The upper ring marks the water level. 4 meters over normal level.
