Djurhamn 2008 Fieldwork Report On-Line

The Stockholm County Museum has just put my report on last summer’s fieldwork at Djurhamn on-line (in Swedish). As you may remember, I blogged about it at the time (here, here and here). The results were actually a bit of a let-down after the sword I found in ’07.

  1. Caused at least in a great part by the Black Death in the 1350s. The sudden dramatic population decrease led to a collapse in the demand for grain and in the supply of farm labour. So it became expensive to produce grain at the same time as grain became cheap. This led to the abandonment of huge tracts of peripheral farmland.
