Snartemodugnaðr- A Workgroup seminar on Migration period at Lister area (part of Vest-Agder County in Southern Norway).

This workgroupseminar is only for invited participants. For more information, and if you want to receive an invitation, please contact Katja Regevik, Tingvatn fornminnepark at katja.regevik@vestagdermuseet.no.

Due this theme is interesting to many, we have public event on Saturday March 28th with lectures and crafters.

The Vest-Agder Museum sees it as a main objective to disseminate history to the public in an easily accessible way. We invite academics, citizen scientists and crafters to provide clues to reveal the riddles of the past. In collaboration with a wealth of knowledge we achieve more learning and, of course, more vivid narratives.

For the Museum it is important to put information from local finds into a larger context. The Museum and the Department of Cultural Heritage and Culture Tourism at Agder County invites you to take part in this task and contribute in making the Migration period better known.

Backround:
The Norwegian Snartemo finds, dating back to the Migration period one and a half millennia ago, have achieved international importance. These archeological discoveries with their objects of luxury and fine craft deserve to be scrutinized yet again on the basis of new insights and new methods of research.

The starting point of the Snartemo 2020 seminar originates in recent interest in the complex structures of the tablet- woven bands from burial mounds 2 and 5. These finds have inspired enthusiasts in the Nordic countries to return to the woven patterns and replicate them with new tablet woven bands, using genuine colourants and fiber materials as close as possible.

In a wider scope, the elaborate Snartemo textiles represented an intrinsic part of the society which also made the burial mounds. People, ideas, items, raw materials, and knowledge travelled with individuals and were kept and maintained by society – until something happened and new cultural trends took over. What happened and how deep was the change is still not fully understood.

We also do find interest on looking to other signs that emphasize the importance of the Migration period and the central part played by Snartemo/ Lister in Norway at that time.

The Snartemo 2020 seminar announces its goal to provide material for both exhibitions and educational purposes, and to initiate a publication which will be edited through the kind effort of Mr. Frans-Arne Hedlund Stylegar from Multiconsult. Articles presented in this publication, are to be peer reviewed.
