AbstractIn the 11th century, Scandinavia went through a process of Christianisation during which new institutions were introduced and new media appeared. Links across the North Sea had an important role in these developments. This session will explore the relations between England, Denmark, and Norway in the 11th century and consider questions related to the transmission, adoption, and development of ideas, techniques, and materials. The papers each take a different approach to the study of the transcultural relations and will contribute to the overall debate about the role and impact of North Sea links in early medieval Scandinavia.
