In the 900s an earth rampart for the defence of the early city was constructed, encircling the settlement, much like the defence structures found at Viking ring fortresses elsewhere.

It is notable that the "Aa" spelling has been in use the longest.

"Aa" was also used by some major institutions between 1948-2011 as well, such as Aarhus university (AU) or the largest local sports club, Aarhus Gymnastikforening (AGF), who have never used the "Å"-spelling.

Parts of the ramparts are still in existence today and can be experienced as steep slopes at the riverside and they have also survived in some place names of the inner city, including the streets of Volden (The Rampart) and Graven (The Moat).

Major Danish companies have based their headquarters here and people commute for work and leisure from a wide area in Region Midtjylland.

Archaeologists have conducted several excavations in the inner city since the 1960s revealing wells, streets, homes and workshops.

In the buildings and adjoining archaeological layers, everyday utensils like combs, jewellery and basic multi-purpose tools from approximately the year 900 have been found.

There are strong indications of a former royal residence from the Viking Age in Viby, a few kilometres south of the Aarhus city centre.
