Welcome to the Symposium - Asia and Scandinavia: New Perspectives on the Early Medieval Silk Roads.

Location: Östasiatiska museet, Stockholm
Location: The auditorium at the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities Price: Free entrance, but limited seating

The early medieval trade routes of Eurasia reached its northwestern outpost in Scandinavia. The symposium takes archaeological material from investigations in east Scandinavia as a starting point and opens the research field toward the east, through present-day Russia and Central Asia, to meet current Silk-Roads-related research in China.

Presentations and discussions will be in English.
