Chapter Summary

One can rather speak of three levels associated with the geographical spread of the innovation. The first is the use of pottery at all, the second concerns the presence of genuine Late Slavic vessels, and the third is the extent of Baltic ware in relation to an indigenous tradition with its roots in the simple household pots of the Late Iron Age. This chapter presents a description and analysis of Baltic ware in what is now Sweden. Since the search for analogies between Baltic ware and Late Slavic pottery is dependent on highly detailed descriptions of all the forms and the chronological differences they display, the complex of finds from each site is described separately. The Scandinavian population adopted stylistic elements from the Slavic vessels, above all decoration, which transformed the expressions used by the indigenous potters.

Keywords: Baltic ware; indigenous potters; Late Slavic pottery; Scandinavian population; Sweden
