  • Steinalderkeramikken fra Rogaland – en kronologisk studie

    • Authors: Svein Vatsvåg Nielsen
      Pages: 7–30 - 7–30
      Abstract: From the 1800’s and onwards, pottery sherds have been found at a number of Neolithic occupation sites in Rogaland County, Southwestern Norway. In this paper, pottery assemblages from nine contexts are analyzed in order to produce an interpretative chronology. Typological analysis is combined with correspondence analysis and Bayesian modelling of radiocarbon dates. The result is a coherent chronological model that accounts for variations in pottery decoration styles between the late Early Neolithic and the Late Neolithic. There is a development in decorative styles from cord and cord-stamp ornamented vessels followed by a period of pots decorated with cord-stamp, small imprints and incisions, and finally a phase with added lines, comb, and cord-stamp. However, the multi-phased nature of the sites suggests that there are still many unanswered questions. New excavations and re-analyses of older sites are necessary for a better understanding of the developments in Neolithic pottery styles.

  • Etnesjøen – en førromersk landsby på Vestlandet

    • Authors: Søren Diinhoff
      Pages: 31–6 - 31–6
      Abstract: In the summer months of 2013, the University Museum of Bergen conducted an archeological excavation of a large prehistoric settlement area at Etnesjøen in Etne parish, Western Norway. By use of mechanized top soil stripping numerous buildings, inhumation burials, cooking pits and kilns were uncovered. The site dates from the Late Bronze Age to Early Medieval Period. The focus of the article is the discovery of a Pre-Roman Iron Age village, formed of up to six farms chronologically spanning up to five generations of continuous occupation. At the time of the excavation, this was only the second pre-historic village of its kind found in Norway, indicating a significant and important discovery.

  • Eldre jernalders tjæreproduksjon ut av tåken. Om tidlig norsk
           tjæreproduksjon med utgangspunkt i et funn på Averøy i Møre og Romsdal

      Pages: 63–8 - 63–8
      Abstract: For many years it has been well known that tar was an available commodity in the Norwegian Iron Age, but until recently no production site or installation for such production was known. In this paper two recently discovered tar production sites, in south-eastern and mid-Norway respectively, are presented and discussed. Both are clay-lined funnel-shaped pits that are dug into the ground with an upper part where the wood was stacked and lit, and a lower part where the tar was collected in a container. The Norwegian tar production pits are similar to contemporary Swedish ones found in large numbers in mid-Sweden. The type is also known from the eastern part of Central Europe where they came into use a few centuries later than in Scandinavia.

  • Gjermundbufunnet – en småkonges grav med østlig tilsnitt
           på Ringerike

    • Authors: Frans-Arne H. Stylegar, Ragnar Løken Børsheim
      Pages: 89–1 - 89–1
      Abstract: The Gjermundbu find came to light under difficult, wartime circumstances in 1943. With travel and other restrictions in place, a full-scale rescue excavation was not possible, and the find is poorly documented. What is certain, is that we are dealing with a very rich grave from the end of the 10th century, with few if any parallels outside the milieu of the large ship graves. The cremation grave held some very uncommon objects, like a helmet and a chain mail, as well as five or six horses and one or two sledges. While there are many similarities between the Gjermundbu find and the Vendel and Valsgärde burials in Sweden, the closest parallels to the find are the so-called druzhina burials in present-day Russia and Ukraine, and the authors suggest that the buried man was a petty king, who had served in the retinue of Vladimir the Great or one of his predecessors, together with other warriors from Ringerike.

  • Hvordan endret byggeskikken seg på Borg' En analyse av fire utvalgte
           hus på Borg, Vestvågøy fra yngre jernalder til høymiddelalder

    • Authors: Elin Tinuviel Torbergsen
      Pages: 123– - 123–
      Abstract: The purpose of the analysis was to highlight how the building tradition at Borg, Lofoten, Norway, changed from the Late Iron Age to the High Middle Ages. The construction elements such as roof-bearing posts, doorways, fireplaces, walls, and room divisions were compared between Borg I:1a, Borg I:1b, Borg II and Borg III. The results of the analyses emphasized that the building tradition at Borg changed in regard to house construction, size of the buildings and the division of rooms. The residents of Borg traditionally built longhouses with combined living room and byre from approx. 600 AD to the year 1300 AD. It is argued that limited access to local resources, such as timber, led to the residents retaining much of the same building tradition for approx. 700 years.

  • Pilegrimsspor fra Tynset: En detektorfunnet blymedaljong med kristne

    • Authors: Margrete Figenschou Simonsen , Karoline Kjesrud
      Pages: 141– - 141–
      Abstract: In 2016, a metal detectorist found a circular lead medallion with iconography on both sides in Tynset in the Østerdalen valley. This article studies the medallion’s shape, function and symbolical content. The object is interpreted as a pendant comparable with pilgrim badges from the late medieval period. The motifs are identified as Christian, representing the apocalyptical Mary with Christ on one side, and a passion and resurrection scene on the other. In this article, the medallion is compared to Norwegian and other European pilgrim badges and amulets with the same motifs, suggesting its origin most likely to be Aachen in Germany. Aachen was one of the most visited holy places for pilgrimage in Europe. The motifs can be connected to the Marian cathedral in Aachen, at the same time as expressing religious content regularly transmitted in the late medieval church. By comparing the motifs with Old Norse texts and images, the article demonstrates how the amulet’s religious messages potentially could influence the bearer – possibly a Norwegian pilgrim.
