The Viking Age (c. 750 – 1050 AD) was essentially a formative period of European history. During this time, Scandinavians were to leave their mark across Europe and beyond, and contributed to shaping the world we live in today. With their discovery and colonization of Iceland, Greenland and America the Vikings expand the borders of the known world. Archaeology shows the Viking Age as a transformation of societies within and beyond Scandinavia.

The course gives an in-depth introduction to the archaeology of the Scandinavia and Northern Europe, and frames this in the perspective of an interdisciplinary field of research. The focus is on the cultural and societal transformation of Scandinavia and its neighbors in the period c. 600-1100 CE in the context of the catalyzing expansion of maritime interactions. Themes include: The expansion of maritime activities and ship-building, diaspora communities and identities, martial society and gender roles, colonization and climate, urban networks and globalization and cultural interactions with Slavs, Finns, Balts and Sami, Franks and Anglo Saxons.
