  3. 13. Historical Urban Agriculture : Food Production and Access to Land in Swedish Towns before 1900

    Author : Annika Björklund; Mats Widgren; Johannes Renes; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; urban agriculture; urban history; urban geography; Sweden; town; food production; food consumption; Uppsala; historical geography; land allocation; cadastral maps; urban land-use; Human geography; Kulturgeografi; Human Geography; kulturgeografi;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis analyses the role of historical urban agriculture in a long-time perspective, through a combination of overarching surveys of Swedish towns and detailed studies of one town – Uppsala in east-central Sweden. The study shows how agricultural land – town land – of various sizes was donated to towns repeatedly during medieval times and in the 16th and 17th centuries. READ MORE

  4. 14. Our Bones, who art contaminated : Glues, strontium isotopes, and mobility in early Swedish Christians

    Author : Crista Adelle Wathen; Kerstin Lidén; Sven Isaksson; Christophe Snoeck; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Strontium isotopes; contamination; conservation; glues; Christianity; mobility; early Christians; Sweden; Varnhem; Västerhus; bones; teeth; Scientific Archaeology; arkeologi med inriktning mot laborativ arkeologi;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to build upon previous research into contamination and its effects on isotopes by focusing on the strontium isotopic ratio (87Sr/86Sr), which is used in mobility studies to study the movements of past humans and animals and to build past economic trading networks. Contamination is a broad topic, and in the scope of this thesis, it concerns the introduction of contaminants from the soil after interment and the post-excavation preservation efforts. READ MORE

  5. 15. Tree Rings as Sensitive Proxies of Past Climate Change

    Author : Håkan Grudd; Wibjörn Karlén; Brian Luckman; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Tree ring; width; density; climate; temperature; change; variability; sensitivity; Torneträsk; Tornetrask; Sweden; Fennoscandia; explosive; volcanic; eruption; Santorini; Thera; subfossil; Fitzroya; Chile; Physical geography; Naturgeografi;

    Abstract : In the boreal forests of the Northern Hemisphere, time series of tree-ring width (TRW) and maximum density in the latewood (MXD) are highly correlated to local instrumental summer-temperature data and are thus widely used as proxies in high-resolution climate reconstructions. Hence, much of our present knowledge about climatic variability in the last millennium is based on tree-rings. READ MORE
