These sub-projects are the individual research components of which Gokstad Revitalisert is composed. Each sub-project has clear research questions and is carried out by researchers that are specialists in this particular field. Often methodology or base-line data necessary for the sub-projects have been developed in other, associated research projects at the Museum of Cultural History.
The Gokstad mound is an important source to the burial and an archive for information about how the landscape at Gokstad looked and was used at the time of the burial.
In contrast to other metals, iron was produced in large quantities in Norway at the time of the Gokstad burial.
The specific goal of this project is to investigate the relationship between the Gokstad burial and the Skiringssal Kaupang, Norway's first urban settlement, which was situated some 15 km south of Gokstad.
