THE PROGRAM


Harvard's Viking Studies Program is conceived of as a whole, an integrated program combining the many different disciplinary approaches that can shed light in each its own way on this period of northern European culture and history, bringing through this combined disciplinary power a better understanding and a more subtle consideration of this important period in European history.


Thus, in addition to examining the empirical evidence itself, it is our intention that you experience the many different methods that have been developed to access this bygone world through texts and material culture. That, our original heart-felt goal, remains in place today, and is much more than just the standard paen to cross-disciplinarity.
