Dear Susan,

This statement in the book appears to be wrong. How could the treaty be
signed in this Castle if it wasn't built until 984?

In front of the Mayors residence there is a piece of old wall behind glass
with a plaque stating that this is the remains of the building in which the
treaty was signed. Well actually it was a treaty by hand shake.
