9781841714318: The Nordic Scimitar: External relations and the creation of elite ideology (BAR International Series)

Based on an MA thesis, this short study looks at social stratification, `elitization' and ideology in the Scandinavian Bronze Age. His study focuses on a particular artefact type, a curved bronze sword known as the scimitar that is thought to have originated in Anatolia. Engedal explores the diffusion of knowledge and ideas from here to Scandinavia, what the scimitar represents in terms of elite ideology and the possible relationships that existed between the two regions in the 17th century BC.

Book Description British Archaeological Reports, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The Nordic Bronze Age provides rich and well-preserved material, including large amounts of Central European bronze. It was the northern extention of the European Bronze Age cultures, and was included in this sphere rather late. But when it happened, Nordic societies got fully engaged in large-scale bronze metallurgy and adopted many elements of foreign symbolism. This book focusses on the earliest Nordic Bronze Age, at the outset of large-scale bronze import and metallurgy - when new forms of hierarchies and leadership were in the making. A specific category of objects, the bronze scimitars of Southeastern Scandinavia, provides the opportunity to explore the issues of scale, distance and context.
