Things from the Town

Af n a

in this third volume deriving from the excavations of the viking town of kaupang of 2000-2003, a range of artefacts is presented along with a discussion of the town's inhabitants: their origins, activities and trading connexions. the main categories of artefact are metal jewellery and ornaments, gemstones, vessel glass, pottery, finds of soapstone, whetstones and textile-production equipment. the artefacts are described and dated, and their areas of origin discussed. the volume is lavishly illustrated.

an exceptional wealth and diversity of artefacts distinguishes sites such as kaupang from all other types of site in the viking world. above all, they reflect the fact that a large population of some 400-600 people lived closely together in the town, engaged in a comprehensive range of production and trade. the stratigraphically distinct layers from the first half of the 9th century allow us to put precise dates to the finds, and to the buildings and evidence of activities associated with them.
