Mannen med hull i hodet

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

Denne mannen levde i Trondheim p√• 1200-tallet. Han har en h√łyst interessant sykdomshistorie¬†og den har jeg skrevet litt¬†om, samtidig som jeg gj√łr meg noen tanker om hva dette kan si om¬†middelaldersamfunnet i Trondheim. Du kan laste ned historien her (pdf.): Mannen med hull i hodet

Conference: 30th and 31st March, 2016

Monday, November 2nd, 2015

To mark the completion of this three year research project, I, in cooperation with the Research group for mediaeval studies at the University of Bergen, will be hosting a conference which aims to expand the knowledge of the pre-modern Scandinavian population. I hope to bring together representatives of several different academic disciplines to discuss topics surrounding pre-modern immigration and mobility in Scandinavia. Half of the program is already full, but there is still room for more speakers.


The title of the conference:

Multidisciplinary approaches to improve our understanding of immigration and mobility in pre-modern Scandinavia (1000-1900)



If these are topics you are working with, please, consider presenting a paper. The different conference sessions and speakers presented on the conference webpage.

If this sounds interesting or if you have any questions, send me an e-mail:

On these pages you will find information relating to the post-doctoral research project “Immigration and mobility in mediaeval and post-mediaeval Norway”. You will find information about the project’s aims and objectives, its methodology, and its¬†management and contributors. In addition to this,¬†the blog aims to give an up-to-date account of the project’s progress,¬†as well as providing an insight into my life as a researcher and things that I find academically¬†interesting. Posts of a personal nature will be kept to a minimum but I can’t promise you won’t be exposed to the odd mundane entry. When I write the blog posts, I will sometimes assume a certain knowledge of the project and some things may be difficult to understand if you haven’t had a look at the project description.

If you have any thoughts on any of the things in the blog posts, please leave a comment. I will attempt to respond to comments and answer questions as quickly as possible. To leave a comment, press the ‚ÄúNo comments‚ÄĚ link below the posts.
