Nordens emporium. Netværkets arkæologi i det ældste Ribe

Ribe gemmer en af de vigtigste arkæologiske kilder til Europas historie imellem folkevandringstiden og middelalderen. Som Danmarks tidligste by var den et knudepunkt for maritime netværk, der knyttede verden sammen på nye måder på tærsklen til vikingetidens maritime ekspansion.
