Description

The North Atlantic during the Viking Age covers a large chronological period and a huge region with a vast cultural and social diversity that is reflected in the archaeological record.

Settlements in this region and period show an equal diversity. The methodologies to study these regions vary greatly; for example, tephrochronology is a common method in Iceland, while dendrochronology is commonly used in mainland Scandinavia. This panel is interdisciplinary and open to archaeologists working in any of the North Atlantic regions in the Viking Age. Diverse topics are welcome, including: the function of individual farmstead buildings, animal husbandry, agriculture, iron production, chronology, environmental studies, and burial archaeology etc. The accepted papers focus on Viking Age settlements in Iceland, Norway, and Britain.
