Abstract [en]

In order to understand the great network of trade and political alliances stretching from Birka to Constantinople we need to consider the cultural identity of the people moving along this trade route and the people inhabiting the trading posts. Their culture was based on trade, travel, and warfare, where warfare created an ideological superstructure that affected all: warriors, trade families, and the like. The cultural expression of thees people was maintained throughout a vast area by exceptionally close-woven - and not necessarily unproblematic - contacts. The topic of this chapter is the expression of affiliation and identity through the means of material culture, with special focus on the people living along the eastern trade route, referred to as Rus'.
