Item description for Urban Diversity: Archaeology in the Swedish Province of Ostergotland by Richard Hedvall...
With its six medieval towns, the province of Ostergotland offers urban diversity. It has towns with roots in early medieval market places and assembly sites, central places for the new Christian religion and the nascent royal power, and towns with their economic background in mills and fisheries. Several of these early central placesreceived borough charters in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. Some of them developed into the most important commercial towns and cultural centres of their time, while others soon declined in significance. Urban Diversity contains a number of articles reflecting the urban landscape of Ostergotland, but it also gives a sample of the diversity of urban archaeology in recent years.
