Coins, Market Towns And Trade In The Viking Age

A Lecture by
Dr. Kenneth Harl
Department of History
Tulane University

Thursday, November 12, 2015

free admission and free parking on campus

Co-sponsored by the Office of the Provost, the Department of Classical Studies and the New Orleans Society of the Archaeological Institute of America

Contrary to popular perceptions, Scandinavians of the Viking Age often trade more than raided. Coins and archaeological finds, in tandem with contemporary literary sources reveal the economic, social, and political impact of overseas trade that transformed Scandinavia between the ninth and eleventh centuries. Find out how the widespread use of coins and development of towns facilitated commerce along the “Northern Trade Arc,” stretching from Dublin to Constantinople. These new market towns such as Birka and Hedeby were vital for the emergence of territorial kingdoms, and the Scandinavians entered the wider community of Christian Europe.
