Monograph announcement: Viking Law and Order: Places and Rituals of Assembly in the Medieval North

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

The new monograph Viking Law and Order: Places and Rituals of Assembly in the Medieval North is the first comprehensive study of Viking-Age and Norse assembly (thing) sites, covering Scandinavia, Scotland and the North Atlantic region. Until very recently the characteristics of thing sites were virtually unknown, apart from a few select sites such as Þingvellir in Iceland and Gamla Uppsala in Sweden. Using archaeological evidence, written sources and place names, this book provides a comprehensive analysis of these assembly sites, showing that they played an integral role in Norse culture and identity.
