Changing Coastal Landscapes: Shore displacement and the strategies for defence and subsistence at the medieval castle of Raseborg

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review

Abstract

Recent archaeological research around the medieval Castle of Raseborg has shown that in the Middle Ages the most prominent changes in the surroundings of the castle, both natural and man-made, are related to the littoral landscape of the site. Archaeological data offers new information on post-glacial shore displacement in the region, and suggests that during the first half of the 16th century the shore level around the castle was considerably lower than expected. Shore displacement also affected the castle’s strategies for defence and subsistence.
