Acta Scandinavica is a targeted series for Scandinavian Studies worldwide, focusing on early Scandinavian culture, history, language, and literature across a broad chronological period that stretches from the fall of Rome up to the emergence of modern states in the seventeenth century. The series promotes research from a range of subject areas and methodologies as a way of shedding new light on to the unique geographical region of Scandinavia, and it invites submissions of both monographs and thematically coherent volumes with essays.
