Walking Down Memory Lane: Rune-Stones as Mnemonic Agents in the Landscapes of Late Viking-Age Scandinavia
2015 (English)In: Early Medieval Stone Monuments: Materiality, Biography, Landscape / [ed] Howard Williams, Joanne Kirton and Meggen Gondek, Woodbridge: Boydell & Brewer, 2015, 62-86 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
The archaeological approach adopted in this contribution wishes to explore the mnemonic agency of the rune-stones through highlighting some of the myriad rhizomatic relations that were generated through the embodied processes of making, staging and encountering rune-stones. It equally emphasises that memory work is practical, performative and therefore necessarily embodied in its constitution.
