Beskrivning

In this project I intend to explore a range of methods rooted in critical mapping and alternative cartography for analysing and representing the mental geographies of Norse seafarers between c. 800 - 1100 CE.
My main research questions are: how did Norse seafarers from c. 800-1100 CE conceive of the environment/s they inhabited, and what methods can we use to reconstruct and represent these worldviews?
