1. Einarson, Leif. Re-forging the smith: an interdisciplinary study of smithing motifs in Völuspá and Völundarkviða.

Degree: 2011, University of Western Ontario

This project examines smithing motifs in the Old Norse poems Völuspá and Völundarkviða. The purpose of this research is to develop an understanding of these motifs in the contexts in which these poems were composed and transmitted. The first chapter examines stanza seven of Völuspá and the role of the aflar, “forges/furnaces”, that the Æsir establish as part of their first settlement. I examine the significance of these aflar from literary, linguistic and archaeological perspectives and in relation to metallurgical functions and communal structures. I present a definition of afl and I conclude with a summary of the significance of the aflar in Völuspá stanza seven. The second chapter examines stanza forty of Völuspá and the role of the toponym Járnviðr, “Iron-wood”, in both the mythological and socio-historical landscape. I analyze the derivatives and morphological parallels of this toponym. I conclude that this toponym exhibits a geographical concept of resources related to bog iron smelting. The third chapter examines artisanal motifs in Völundarkviða in comparison to early Germanic customs and possible literary and historical analogues. I study the poem as a performance of spatial, networked relations between artisans and the aristocratic elite. I examine the significance of Völundr’s artisanal revenge as a subversion of early Germanic customs. Whereas smithing motifs and smithing figures have regularly been approached through archetypal and comparative methodologies, this thesis attempts to broaden our understanding of these motifs in relation to specific literary, social and technical features of metalworking in early medieval Scandinavia.

2. Sunding, Emelie. Mosslikens vara eller inte vara : Om mosslikens relevans som en egen fyndkategori och forskares sätt att skapa en sådan.

Degree: Human Sciences, 2009, University of Kalmar

Is it relevant to treat bog bodies as its own category within the archaeological research? This paper examines how scholars and researchers, through their publications and depictions of the preserved prehistoric individuals, are helping to create such a category. What has changed in the way scholars look at and describe these astounding finds? Also examines the various theories researchers provide regarding bog bodies and how they are deposited.

3. Adlreburg, Nickolas Pappas. To Make Iron of Iron : A Comprehensive Analytical Study of Spade Shaped Iron Bars.

Degree: Archaeological Research Laboratory, 2017, Stockholm University

This thesis aims to provide adequate analytical information on the spade shaped iron bars of Norrland and central Sweden. While their significance has been thoroughly debated for decades, analytical research on them has been confined to cases of single artefacts or theoretical interpretations of their value, meaning and origin. In this study a comprehensive approach is taken into consideration. Based on X-Ray fluorescence (XRF), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and metallographical analysis this thesis seeks to facilitate new interpretations on quality, production centres and usage based on analytical results. Aiming to settle some of the long lasting questions regarding the artefacts while producing results which can further the discussion by raising new questions, previously unasked.
