It has been planned that Skjoldungelandet should become a national park. This is based on the areas cultural history; both the physical sights (e.g. the Cathedral of Roskilde), legends of Skjoldungerne (legendary kings from Danish sagas) and old fables (Skjoldungelandet, 2014). But the Danish law of national parks, requires that a national park includes distinctive geological phenomena or natural forms (Lov om Nationalparker, 2013). From the knowledge of the formation of the Danish glacial period Weichsel, glacial movements and processes, it has been possible to identify the different landscape elements in Skjoldungelandet, though with a degree of uncertainty. This is because such analyzes are characterized by a certain degree of subjectivity and partially missing data. From a map with landscape elements drawn in GIS in this project, we could see that the new digital databases have made it possible to create incredibly detailed landscape maps, where it was possible to see some landscape elements that previous mappers had not seen evident in the landscape. Estimated from this map, the landscape elements in Skjoldungelandet is mainly the same as in the Mols Bjerge National Park, and can therefore not be classified as unique and characteristic. However, if the limit is extended a bit to the south and east, more types of landscape elements will be included, and with that the geomorphology support the establishment of Skjoldungelandet as a national park. As a part of the project soil drillings have also been conducted on three different locations within Skjoldungelandet. A classification of the textural soil classes, based on laboratory analyses, show a compliance with the respective landscape elements, at the locations in a mouth of an ice lake (K1) and the ice lake itself (K2). However, at the location in Gevninge (G1), the soil analyses indicate a landfill, and can therefore not support the respective landscape element, which is a Stone Age seabed.
