New archaeological research on Brink Castle has enriched our knowledge about this medieval site. Everyday life on "hovedgård Brink" was already new from its accountings written in 1388/89. The recent excavations revealed this "gård" being a heavy fortified castle with solid curtain walls and a wide moat. Its fortified inner area of about 60 x 45 m nearly matches the size of the inner castles of Vordingborg, Hammershus, Kalundborg or Nyborg and makes Brink to one of the largest Danish castles. This size, its exposed topography and its broad range of finds dating back to the 13th century, resembles an older, hypothetic royal castle at Brink site that once was given to Ribe bishopric. Further research is needed on that site.
