Tittel

The Norwegian Millstone Landscape

Sammendrag

The Norwegian Millstone Landscape focuses on the historical narrative of quarrying, processing and trade of specific stone resources crucial to the production of the most fundamental food, flour. The shaping of extensive cultural landscapes by millstone quarrying provides a rich historical record of social, economic and political processes that surrounded food production for over 15000 years. Moreover, the consumption of millstones at local, regional and international scales represents conduits in the evolution of trade and social networks that grew around the millstone quarriying industry, and that define an "extended millstone landscape". Today, the socio-cultural and economic values of these millstone landscapes are at best greatly underestimated or, at worst, completely unknown. Undertaken by an interdisciplinary research team comprising the disciplines of geology, archaeology, historiy and landscape geography, this project addresses the proposal call by developing methods for characterisation and reconstrution of the Norwegian millstone landscapes as a narrative that links the past with the present in a common heritage. The broader objective is to provide heritage authorities with information and interpretation necessary to encourage local preservation and promotion of these landscapes as key social-cultural and economic resources.
