Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Guests in the House contains the table of contents, preface and acknowledgements, and a list of illustrations. No other period in Scandinavian archaeology provokes such a degree of international attention as the Viking Age. As regional icons for the North, Vikings occupy a position not only in the minds of curious tourists, but also in those of scholars. Viking influence extends to even later periods. Modern scholars mostly see the Norse achievement as a purely Scandinavian activity. The neighbours of those fierce Vikings, and later on of crusaders in the Baltic, were not only on the receiving end. Neighbours interact, even if the contacts can be skewed. Strangers influenced Scandinavia no less than Scandinavians impacted on European medieval culture. The book intends to highlight a period of such interaction by focusing on Slav and Scandinavian cultural exchange between ca 900 and 1300 A.D.

Keywords: Baltic; European medieval culture; Norse achievement; Scandinavian archaeology; Viking Age
