Making the Viking Age

Matthew C. Delvaux

Back to "Spring 2023" courses

Between the 700s and 1000s, pirates known as Vikings raided much of Europe. Some were linked to merchant communities trading in Central Asia, while others joined diaspora groups that settled the North Atlantic. They made their world through various means--texts, images, artifacts, and behaviors. In this course, students will accomplish parallel work, guided by the principle that making is best studied by doing. Students will learn how Viking-Age peoples made their world and consider how we recreate and represent that world today. This course includes travel to Denmark during spring recess.

Applications will be accepted until the course is closed; for full consideration, please submit by November 21, 2022. 

Students from all concentration areas are encouraged to apply.
