Viking Settlements & Viking Society
The Viking congresses bring together scholars
of archaeology, philology, history, toponymy,
numismatics and a number of other disciplines to
discuss the Viking Age from a variety of viewpoints.
This volume contains 31 peer-reviewed papers selected from those presented at
the 16th Viking congress held in Reykjavík and Reykholt in Iceland in August
2009. It lives up to the interdisciplinary challenge by covering a wide range of
subjects, rooted in the past, but connecting to the present with a discussion of the
role of Viking studies in education and their contribution to understanding the
environmental issues of the present.
