Iceland's Networked Society: Revealing How the Global Affairs of the Viking Age Created New Forms of Social Complexity

Tara Carter, "Iceland's Networked Society: Revealing How the Global Affairs of the Viking Age Created New Forms of Social Complexity"
English | ISBN: 9004289135 | 2015 | 368 pages | PDF | 15 MB

Linked by the politics of global trade networks, Viking Age Europe was a well-connected world. Within this fertile social environment, Iceland ironically has been casted as a marginal society too remote to participate in global affairs, and destined to live in the shadow of its more successful neighbours. Drawing on new archaeological evidence, Tara Carter challenges this view, arguing that by building strong social networks the first citizens of Iceland balanced thinking globally while acting locally, creating the first cosmopolitan society in the North Atlantic. Iceland's Networked Society asks us to reconsider how societies like Iceland can, even when positioned at the margins of competing empires, remain active in a global political economy and achieve social complexity on its own terms.
