2004: Wulfstan’s Voyage

Here follows an abstract of the introduction published in the proceedings of the seminar:

The present volume with the edited Wulfstan-related papers, published in the same series as ‘Ohthere’s Voyages’, will hopefully serve its purpose: to promote an awareness of the different cultures living along the shores of the Baltic Sea during the Viking Age and to discuss the impact of maritime communications on numerous aspects of life in these interacting social groups.   

The seminar was a joint project between the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde, the Archaeological State Museum of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in Schwerin, the Centre for the History and Culture of East Central Europe in Leipzig, the Roman-Germanic Commission in Frankfurt am Main and the Lower Saxony Institute for Historical Coastal Research in Wilhelmshaven.

The proceedings of the seminar were published in 2009, in the monograph ’Wulfstan’s Voyage. The Baltic Sea region in the early Viking Age as seen from shipboard’, edited by Anton Englert & Athena Trakadas
