Meeting a Region of Archaeology within its History of North Atlantic Market Relations
Author(s): Ramona Harrison
This is an abstract from the session entitled "Governance and Globalization in the North Atlantic", at the 2023 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.
This paper presents a interdisciplinary perspective on the long-distance market relations between and within the regional Hinterlands of an Icelandic trading station, and the socio-economic organization and structures in place.
While the main part of the presentation will focus on the 12th to 14th century evidence from both the archaeofaunal and finds materials from Gasir and the sites in its Hinterland areas in the Eyjafjord region, the paper will further discuss the structure of power and social control in place to enable such a system.
