In Helsinki a few weeks back I made the acquaintance of my charming colleague Wesa Perttola. Now he has made excellent distribution maps for my forthcoming Östergötland book. Above is the scatter of 9th and 10th century elite indicators (big black dots) against a background of 6th-8th century indicators (smaller grey dots) and farms named Tegneby (“thane’s farm”, stars). Wesa tells me that he is currently available for more GIS and CAD work.

  1. My feeling is that the grey dots are easy to see but hard to distinguish from the large black dots. But Wesa and I figured that it is more important to distinguish the grey dots from the surrounding grey woodland than from the black dots.
