Chapter Summary

A common question in encounters between professional archaeologists and the general public is how to explain the presence of foreign artefacts in Scandinavia. In this chapter, the author sums up what we know from each region in Sweden about the association between the Scandinavian and Slavic ceramic traditions. The empirical evidence signals clearly where the influences came from and how the forms spread. Through time, zones also formed within Scandinavia, displaying regional differences in the use of Baltic ware. One may regard this angle of approach as a typological, chronological, and chorological study which provides the foundation for the next step. The chapter also looks at the explanations of the links between Slavic ethnic identity and Baltic ware, and how the cultural transfer may have taken place.

Keywords: Baltic ware; cultural transfer; professional archaeologists; Scandinavian ceramic traditions; Slavic ceramic traditions
