"Were there Vikings in Finland"? This book is intended to provide essential foundations for approaching the Viking Age in Finland.

The volume consists of a general introduction followed by nineteen chapters and a closing discussion.

The nineteen chapters are oriented to provide introductions to the sources, methods and perspectives of diverse disciplines.

Discussions are presented from fields including archaeology, folklore studies, genetics, geopolitics, historiography, language history, linguistics, palaeobotany, semiotics and toponymy.

Each chapter is intended to help open the resources and the history of discourse of the particular discipline in a way that will be accessible to specialists from other fields, specialists from outside Finland, and also to non-specialist readers and students who may be more generally interested in the topic.
