With Fornvännen's summer issue on its way from the printers to subscribers, we have published the full contents of last winter's issue on-line (2011:4). This is one of the rare cases where no women have contributed papers, but it's good stuff anyway.
- Robin Lindblad on why axes were depicted on Bronze Age rock carvings.
- Michael Schneider on the landscape / societal background to Broby place names.
- Helmer Gustavson & J.O.H. Swantesson give three newish runic inscriptions with the early futhark the full philological treatment.
- Andreas Wiberg & Anders Wikström on geophys mapping of a Sigtuna monastery.
- Anders Nord & Kate Tronner on the pigments used by Medieval mural painters in Sweden.
- Robin Gullbrandsson on dendro dates that prove a Småland tithes barn to be Sweden's oldest standing wooden building.
- Per-Axel Wiktorsson on who wrote the Chronicle of Duke Erik, the oldest narrative source on the Swedish Middle Ages.
- Christian Lovén on previously disregarded written sources regarding the arm position of Medieval burials.
- Immo Trinks & Anders Biwall on what a lightning strike site looks like on a magnetometry map.
- Book reviews.
Martin, you need to fix the link (not everyone will be able to fix it on their own)
Oh, right. Thanks! I forgot.
I read Gustavson & Swantesson, too bad the subject requires some substantial background knowledge to appreciate the article.
