Book description

The Bronze Age saw the development of new methods of exchange and trade in Northern Europe and was a period of increased globalization. However, until now, archaeologists have neglected Bronze Age societies in Northern Europe in favour of Central Europe and the Near East. Local Societies in Bronze Age Northern Europe highlights the diversity of Bronze Age societies in the region. The book argues that such societies were less isolated than previously thought and presents evidence of communication and travel between Northern Europe, Central Europe and the East. Ranging across the Bothnian area, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Russia, the book examines a wide range of topics, from the use of ritual in the expression of identity, to the production of pottery, and social responses to the introduction of metal.
