The Use of Silver as a Medium of Exchange in Jämtland, c. 875–1050

Abstract [en]

At Viking-period emporia such as Kaupang and Birka there is an abundance of archaeological evidence of silver being used as money. But what about rural areas in Scandinavia? This paper discusses a regional case: an area located inland, right in the middle of the Scandinavian Peninsula, namely the province of Jämtland. One could perhaps presume that in a remote rural region like this (as seen from Viking period trading centres) silver was not used in trading activities to any large extent among the populace. But the archaeological evidence from the middle and late Viking period suggests the opposite.
