The estate, the nobility and the feudal society. Estates and social relations in Scania, A.D. 600-1400
The study concerns the growth of a feudal estate-system in Scania. The main period of study is the medieval period to A.D. 1400. The purpose is to analyse the conditions for aristocratic large-scale land owning and in what ways this effected economic and social relations. Comparisons to late iron age conditions are made with the purpose to discuss continuity versus discontinuity.
