Cultural History

TRADE AND COMMUNICATION IN THE NORTH ATLANTIC By Dorte Veien Christiansen The Norse societies in Greenland were dependent on exchange of various commodities from Scandinavia and Western Europe. The written sources as well as the archaeological finds do indeed testify that the Norse settlers kept contact with the other North Atlantic and European communities until the depopulation in the late 15th century. According to the "Description of Greenland" by the Norwegian priest Ivar Bardarsson from the mid 14th century an international harbour named "Sandhavn" (i.e. sandy harbour) was situated near the Norse farm Herjolfsnæs in the southern part of the Eastern Settlement. The harbour must, according to the description, be interpreted as a "port-of-trade". In Greenland the existence of such an institution at the time heavily differs from the general impression we have of a decentralized and redistributive Norse economy. It may indicate that a concentration of power had emerged in the late Norse Greenland, maybe as a result of the Norse submitting to and becoming a more integrated part of the Norwegian Crown in 1261. The project "Trade and Communication in the North Atlantic" aims at examining the dynamics in the organisation of trade and communication in Norse Greenland through the approximate 500 years of Norse presence in Greenland.

    This course, "The Viking World and the Vinland Question," is the successor to a slightly different course I used to teach here at Harvard that focussed more strictly on the period 800 to 1100. As you will see on the syllabus, in addition to the more obvious issues associated with the Viking Age, this course looks to examine the "ongoing reinterpretation of this era in later periods.

    "Reviews the historical events in northern Europe A.D. 800 to A.D. 1100, and the literary legacy that resulted from these activities; special attention paid to the development of the North Atlantic colonies, particularly those in Greenland. The evidence for 'viking' activity in the New World (e.g., the Vinland sagas, the archaeological record)- and the fabrication of such evidence (e.g., the Kensington rune stone, the 'viking' city of Norumbega)- carefully considered."

    The Vikings
    The Vikings were Scandinavian warriors who raided and settled in various parts of Europe, including England and Ireland , between the ninth and 11th centuries. The nations of Denmark Norway , and Sweden arose from Viking kingdoms. A Viking called Rurik of Jutland founded Russia 's royal Rurik dynasty. The Normans (or Northmen), who conquered England in 1066, came from the French duchy of Normandy, which had been founded by the Viking leader Rollo. Even the elite palace guard of the Byzantine Empire was made up largely of Vikings called Varangians. Vikings discovered and settled Iceland in the ninth century. They founded the first European settlement in Greenland in the 10th century. The short-lived 11th century Viking colony of Vinland was probably located in what is now Canada. By the 12th century the Viking Age was over, but the wide-ranging Norsemen had helped shape the modern world.

    Over the years a number of sites of Late- and Postglacial age have been investigated in Denmark, S. Scandinavia and in W. and N. Greenland.
    Apart from the Historic record (since ca. 1600 AD in Denmark), the regional geomagnetic secular variation may be determined by subsampling and measuring the remanent magnetization of oriented specimens from archaeological sites, from vertical sediment cores, or from open sediment profiles of known age.
    The purpose of these studies are to provide us with knowledge of the magnetic secular variation (declination, inclination and intensity) for the area back in time, which may be useful as dating tools in geology and archaeology. They also provide us with information of the properties of the geodynamo.

    Vikings Arrive In America - Again!
    by William W. Fitzhugh
    The discovery of the New World by Leif Eriksson one thousand years ago will be celebrated this year when Vikings: The North Atlantic Saga opens at the Smithsonian lnstitution's National Museum of Natural History on April 29, 2000. Eight years after the 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus' first voyage to the Caribbean, the exhibition seeks to educate the North American public about an earlier episode of European history in the New World by focusing attention on the contributions made by the Vikings and their Norse descendants, who continue to inhabit North Atlantic regions into the modern day. It turns out that educating the public about the Vikings and their relevance to North America is more necessary than one might imagine. North Americans know surprisingly little about this subject, even though it is one of the most popular topics taught in secondary schools (right after the history of Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, and American Indians). What little is presented about Vikings in North American schools only serves to reinforce the stereotypic view of Vikings as crazed warriors bent on mayhem and destruction as they careen about the coasts of Europe in their "dragon-ships," harrying defenseless monasteries, laying siege to towns and cities, and carrying off plunder and slaves to their homelands in Scandinavia. This image has been reinforced by movies, such as the famous Kirk Douglas and Tony Curtis film
