The term epigraphy refers to inscriptions on hard material such as stone, metal and wood. The contributions discuss conceivable considerations that lie behind the choice of medium for a written message, and other features that accompany the script such as pictures and different types of naturalistic and non-naturalistic decorations. When studying epigraphic texts we are also dealing with archaeological finds embedded in a particular context. An inscribed artifact is therefore a multifaceted object of investigation; it calls for an interdisciplinary approach in an intermedial perspective. This book is a collection of essays on Viking Age and medieval epigraphy from Northern Europe from a perspective of intermediality. [Subject: Art History, Viking Studies, Medieval History, Epigraphy]
