Summary This volume examines the various forms of contact between Scandinavia and the rest of Europe from 800 to 1350. It consists of twenty-eight papers from scholars specializing in archaeology, onomastics, literature, art history, epigraphy, religious history and linguistics. The volume is innovative in three respects: (i) in transcending conventional historical boundaries, by bringing together work on both the viking and medieval periods; (ii) by examining the ways in which mainland Europe influenced Scandinavia; and (iii) by synthesizing all the material for an English-language readership for the first time. The broader timespan of investigation illustrates the changing nature of contact and the gradual integration of Scandinavia into European society.
