Die materielle Kultur auf dänischen Burgen: Vielfalt und Qualität als soziales Kapital

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapport/proceedingKonferencebidrag i proceedingsForskningpeer review

This study seeks to explore archaeological finds as
source material for social hierarchy in late medieval
Denmark. A castle was regarded as a joint household,
whose inhabitants significantly shared a part of its
lord’s wealth. 15.610 finds from 13 castles were an-
alysed by means of counting the number of encom-
passed object types. Here, a clear correlation between
the number of artifact types (NAT, Danish and German: AOT)
and the social position of a castle
within late medieval aristocracy can be stated. How-
ever, a multivariate analysis of all finds classified into
functional groups resulted in the impression of com-
mensurate uniformity among the late medieval mil-
itary elite in Denmark. This impression is probably
wrong: the quality of objects and buildings and the
topography of the castle itself have to be taken into
consideration.
