The existence of slaves in Viking Age society and the slave trade of the Vikings has been a matter of long debates. While the actual fact has now been established beyond any doubt, many questions remain. The possibilities of an archaeological approach to slavery and slave trade, the extent of slaves in Scandinavia and their importance for the economy as well as the scope of the slave trade and the implications for Viking Age society still need to be discussed. These aspects are the topic of ten recent papers united in this volume.
