Abstract [en]

Studies of non-ferrous metallurgy in the Viking Age, predominantly from casting activities, have chiefly looked at specialised production contexts, while less specialised production has rarely been discussed in any detail. As a consequence, we know very little about the organisation and context of production outside larger pre-urban/trading sites. The purpose of this article is to discuss the evidence of non-ferrous craft production at a range of sites within the region the Mälaren valley. It highlights that non-ferrous metallurgy was a widespread phenomenon during the Viking Age, but shows clear differences in the extent and context of the production.
