This book is the first of four planned volumes on the Norwegian realm and its dependencies in the central Middle Ages. As with future volumes, the underlying theme of this book is the transformation of Norway and parts of the Norse world into a monarchic state in the 12th and 13th centuries. The collection provides a presentation of the Norse world, the Norse community, the 'Norgesvelde' (the Norwegian domination), along with highlights of geographical, political, and cultural aspects.
