Personal profile


During my teaching, many seminar papers have focused on Medieval children. We have investigated their societal roles, their health, parental care and diet. One important plan now is to sum up our knowledge in a popular volume on Medieval children. An article on diet, growth and age of the children from Westerhus will also be published.

Concluded projects
The research project Medieval people supported by the research council published its final volume in 2009 (se Iregren, Alexandersen, Redin).
