The role of silver in Viking-age society and economy has developed into a most exciting interdisciplinary topic for research. Until recently, the use of silver in Scandinavia in the period c. 800-1100 was regularly characterized as a linear process: from the use of precious metal as a medium for social display, to a 'bullion' economy in which silver assumed functions as a medium of exchange, leading eventually to the adoption of 'proper' coinage. As new evidence has proliferated from private and professional metal-detecting, from the discovery and analysis of remarkable new hoards, and from targeted investigations of both 'central-places' and more ordinary settlement sites, this model has proved itself to be inadequate - and new ones are called for. This book has brought together an international group of archaeologists, historians and numismatists to draw a balance sheet of current research on the developing silver economies in Viking-age Scandinavia.

The Viking Age was a period of great economic complexity and experimentation in Scandinavia. By the end of the period, an ancient 'display' economy, based on ornaments of precious metal, had been largely replaced by counted money and national coinages. But this development was neither simple nor linear: for much of the Viking Age, several silver economies co-existed and in The Viking Age was a period of great economic complexity and experimentation in Scandinavia.

he purpose of this international symposium is to bring together archaeologists, historians and numismatists, from six countries, who are specialists in different aspects of the developing silver economy during the Viking Age in Scandinavia. In other words, the ‘display’ economy of the early Viking period, based on rings and other ornaments of precious metal, had largely been replaced by the use of coin as counted money and the introduction of national coinages, even if central Sweden’s 11th-century coinage was to lapse – and Gotland remained old fashioned throughout.
