Archaeology of waterscapes in northern Norway from the Iron Age to the present with an emphasis on linking cultural heritage issues to research themes: 

  • Coastal settlement and maritime activity (fishery development, boathouses as a social arena)
  • Viking Age and medieval maritime trade and long distance transport of goods (stockfish, stone resources – bakestones, millstones, whetstones, soapstone)
  • Fishery commercialization and globalization of the stockfish trade
  • Watercraft and harbor development
  • Interethnic relations (Sami-Norse interaction)
  • Role of waterways in coastal-inland interaction
  • Marine resources and the development of medieval farm mounds

Archaeological science (geoarchaeology- geochemistry, tephrochronology, geophysical methods)
