HIST 3200 - [The Viking Age]

(crosslisted) MEDVL 3200  
(HB) (HA-AS)      
Spring. Next offered 2018-2019. 4 credits. Student option grading.

O. Falk.

This course aims to familiarize students with the history of Scandinavia, ca. 800-1100 ad. Although well known as a dramatic chapter in medieval history, this period remains enigmatic and often misunderstood. Our goal will be to set Norse history within its European context, observing similarities with processes elsewhere in the medieval world, the better to perceive what makes the Norse unique. We will examine the social, economic and political activities of the Norsemen in continental Scandinavia, in Western and Eastern Europe, and in the North Atlantic.  (HPE/HNU)
