Stockholm before Stockholm, 15 credits

About the education

The aim of the course is to establish a comprehensive knowledge of pre-historic and early mediaeval Stockholm and its environs, with a focus on the archaeological remains from prehistory to c. AD 1300. Through literature studies, field excursions, and a smaller individual assignment the course will give the student tools for conducting analyses and interpretation of different aspects of Stockholm before Stockholm. The different components (ancient remains, heritage landscapes, and the non-material remains) of the landscape will be made clear. The course strives to give the student a reflective approach to the locale, its surrounding landscape and context. A clear interdisciplinary approach is taken where archaeology, human geography, history of religion, and onomastic evidence is represented.

Area of interest: Arts and Humanities

How are different cultures created and how do they affect us? Arts and Humanities is an area of interest that includes a wide variety of subjects such as Archaeology, Philosophy, History, Religion, Ethnology, Literature, and Theatre and Performance Studies. In one way or another these subjects are an expression of how culture affects human beings and society. As a student you will improve your analytical skills and learn to identify different lines of development, often in an interdisciplinary context.

Studies within Arts and Humanities give you broad general competence that is very useful in the job market, where autonomy, analytical and communication skills are in great demand.
