Urban Diversity : Archaeology in the Swedish Province of Ostergotland Paperback / softback
Edited by R. Hedvall
With its six medieval towns, the province of OEstergoetland offers a large degree of urban diversity, from early medieval market places and assembly sites, central places for the new Christian religion and the nascent royal power, to towns with their economic background in mills and fisheries.
Several of these early central placesreceived borough charters in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries.
Some of them developed into the most important commercial towns and cultural centres of their time, while others soon declined in significance.
Urban Diversity contains a number of articles reflecting the urban landscape of OEstergoetland, but it also gives an insight into the diversity of urban archaeology in recent years.
