Viking Art


Viking Art


This map shows trade routes of the Vikings from the 8th to the 11th centuries. The transmission of styles and mediums (such as bone, ivory and antler) followed these trade routes. The map also shows the sources of different metals.

Regions are colored to correspond to the settlements of different groups: the Danish, the Norwegians and the Swedish.

The spread of art styles is illustrated by the colored boxes, which give the approximate time period of each style, ranging from the late 8th century to the 12th century.
