This paper presents the experiences of working closely with the tourism agencies in West Sweden within the research and communication project "Varnhem before the monks". The project raised a huge interest from the public, and from the start archaeology and communication were equally important. Now 10 years after the excavations have ended, the different stakeholders together have made it possible to construct a weather protection and visitor centre. The heritage officials from Västergötland museum have played an important role in this development. © The Author(s) 2019. All rights reserved.
