Response [to Margrethe Watt]
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Ethnology, History of Religions and Gender Studies, History of Religions.
2019 (English)In: Myth, Materiality, and Lived Religion: In Merovingian and Viking Scandinavia / [ed] Klas Wikström af Edholm, Peter Jackson Rova, Andreas Nordberg, Olof Sundqvist, Torun Zachrisson, Stockholm: Stockholm University Press, 2019, p. 213-221Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The iconography of numerous tiny gold foil figures found in Scandinavia provide a unique glimpse into mostly 6th and 7th century society and cult. The article discusses possibilities as well as the pitfalls and complexity of understanding the figures. Some “concepts” of interpretation are given as examples: “Warlord/king among the gods”, “the seer/seeress” and “the legally binding marriage”.

A response to the chapter has been submitted by Olof Sundqvist.
