Bloggside har passert 1000 unike besøkende i løpet av påskehøytiden. Målingene begynte i september forrige år. November var den travleste måneden så langt. Uansett, det er vel betydelig flere enn det som vanligvis leser våre skriverier i tradisjonelle numismatiske, arkeologiske og historiske kanaler.

Vel blåst!

This project aimed to complement and improving the documentation of the medieval church ruins on St. Olofsholm, Hellvi parish, Gotland, by adding a third dimension. The ruins of two churches were excavated and documented during 2013 and 2014, but the documentation was conducted from a 2D perspective. Using Image-Based Modelling techniques, based on a series of some 800 pictures taken after the excavation, it was possible to generate a model of the site and document it in 3D.

I Sverige finns sedan länge en stor upparbetad kunskapsbank kring kulturhistoriskt värdefulla byggnader i allmänhet och kyrkor i synnerhet. Några viktiga projekt som drivits över många år genom svenska Riksantikvarieämbetets försorg är Sveriges Kyrkor – konsthistoriskt inventarium och Sockenkyrkorna – Kulturarv och bebyggelsehistoria, båda med ett stort antal publikationer som resultat. Här diskuteras kyrkobyggnader, inventarier, lokala förhållanden, allmän byggnadshistoria mm, informationsrikt och kunnigt.

Litteraturen om arkeologiske funn innenfor kirkerommet i middelalderkirker er omfattende dersom en tar med både materialoversikter, spesialavhandlinger, arkeologiske rapporter og punktstudier fra enkeltkirker. Myntfunn opptrer så å si alltid i kirkearkeologiske kontekster. Spesialstudier som drøfter myntfunn fra kirker som fenomen er betydelig færre. Denne bibliografiske oversikten er laget med det formål å skape et forskningshistorisk utgangspunkt for videre studier innenfor emnet.

I 1992 disputerte Henrik Klackenberg på avhandlingen Moneta Nostra. Monetariseringen i medeltidens Sverige ved Lunds Universitet. Den har siden dannet utgangspunkt for en rekke diskusjoner om monetarisering og skapt betydelig interesse for myntfunn i kirker, og inspirert flere av oss til nye tanker og metoder i arbeidet med dette materialet.
