Geocache Description:

Under tidig medeltid hade Påbonäs en viktig roll som ett av det svenska rikets sydligaste fästning. Genom Kalmarunionen 1397 fick Sverige, Danmark och Norge gemensam kung. Då förlorade Påbonäs sin betydelse som gränsfästning. Egendomarna splittrades och borgen fick förfalla. Borgen låg på en udde i havet och på så sätt fick man både naturligt skydd och hamn. Inåt land var borgen befäst med vall och vallgrav. Påbonäs medeltida borg är 120 m tvärsöver. Gömman är en 0,3 l blå plastburk med transparent lock och som innehåller loggbok, penna och lite bytesvaror.

In Sweden's early medieval period Påbonäs was important as the southernmost fort for Sweden’s defense. When the Kalmar Union 1397 was established, Sweden, Denmark and Norway got a crowned ruler (king) for all the Nordic countries. Påbonäs then lost its importance as a fort to defense the border to Denmark. The properties were divided and the fort went to ruin. The fort was located on a cape in the sea and therefore both had natural protection and a harbor. Towards land the fort was fortified with embankment and moat. Påbonäs medieval fort have a diameter of 120 m. The cache is a 0.3 l blue plastic box with transparent lid, containing logbook, pencil and some trading items.
