The interdisciplinary project Research Network of Urban Literacy (RUL) is concerned with literacy and urbanity in Scandinavia in the Viking Age and Middle Ages. The main ambition is to shed light on the potential roles urbanity played in the transformation from societies based on orality to societies based on the written word, and simultaneously provide an exchange of methods between different fields of research: History, archeology and philology, in particular runology
