More about the book
About the book
Excavations were carried out in the town of Ribe in southern Denmark from 1970-76 in order to find the earliest traces of the town. It extracted remains of a permanent settlement with an associated marketplace founded within a period of 704-710. This reveals an 8th-century trading site of a character never seen before in the Scandinavian region, thus Denmark appears in a hitherto unknown way as a participant in North-European development in this period.
