Abstract [en]

Landscape, process and economy in the bloomery iron production during AD400–1000 are all integrated in this paper initiated by an archaeological excavation of a bloomery site in Motala in Östergötland, southeast Sweden. This site is one among other contemporaneous sites with similar features, such as long-term iron production and a location in the landscape within easy reach of communication routes and, most importantly, access to the vital raw materials ore and wood. The site is placed in a rich region with several high-status features, such as richly furnished graves and settlements. We evaluate the transfer of knowledge and skills in a landscape perspective. Interactions in a complex network involving various entrepreneurs, from producers to consumers, are suggested as central. The major focus is on the importance of the organisation, the economic point of view, as well as quality and trade.
