Abstract [en]

This paper investigates the relationship between names of hun- dreds, village names correlating with hundred names, and places of assembly. Usually it is assumed that many of the hundreds were given names from names of villages where the assemblies of the hundreds were held. However, when the matter is studied more carefully, taking landscape, field names, and historical and archaeological sources into consideration, another picture is visible: It seems that there are very specialplaces in landscape, archaic and mythic ones, presumably placesof assembly, which in their landscape setting and mythic status as well as by their names link legal activity of the hundreds to a remote prehistoric past. It is likely that the names of these places are the origin of both the hundred names and correlating names of villages in the vicinity. A case study is presented, about Harjager hundred in south-west Scania), Stora and Lilla Harrie villages, and Harthaker ‘ hard field’. The results could support the view that names of archaic places in landscape, rather than correlating village names, are the onomastic origin of the hundred names. But the picture is complex and from this case alone other interpretations are possible as well.

Abstract [en]

The dissertation describes the names related to justice and places in the landscape where justice was administered, applying an interdisciplinary perspective with place names as the chief source material.

One aim is to collect and describe place names in Skåne designating or indirectly associated with meeting places and districts of the court, and to study the named places. The study covers many different periods, but especially the Middle Ages and the transition from the Late Iron Age to the Middle Ages. The analysis raises questions such as: Was there continuity in judicial sites between prehistoric and historic times? How old are the hundreds (härader)? Is there a spatial link between judicial sites and other central functions such as cult, markets, or rulers’ estates?

The work is permeated by material-based onomastic research in combination with current perspectives in text research, historical geography, and archaeology. Nine case studies are conducted to describe the interaction between place, linguistic expression, and meaning.

The study demonstrates the existence of a large corpus of names reflecting the early administration of justice. Most of the many field names which contain ting ‘court’ and galge ‘gallows’ can be related to the actual administration of justice. The medieval sites where courts assembled and people were executed stand out in particular, but in many cases these have prehistoric roots. Both unbroken continuity and the reuse of earlier places of assembly may be assumed. Close to sites with names indicating the administration of justice there are also landscape features with names that grant epic and mythical status to the locale. The special quality of these places was handed down, incorporated in larger narratives, based on changing ideas and circumstances in different periods.

The landscape of the hundred courts (häradsting) is archaic, magnificent and mythical, and shared, qualities that contributed to the maintenance and legitimation of judicial practice. A division into a general, public judicial sphere and a more limited and exclusive sphere can be seen. In the medieval exercise of justice this division is manifested in two different judicial districts – härad and birk – but the phenomenon can be traced back to the Late Iron Age. The study also problematizes a traditional image of the names of the hundreds.

Abstract [en]

The paper discusses a particular type of assembly site in medieval and presumably even older times for the exercise of justice in the province of Skåne (Scania) in southern Sweden (Scandinavian medieval: approx. AD 1050–1520). Through a close and detailed consideration of historical and antiquarian research focused around two key landscape case studies—Torna hundred and Vemmenhög hundred—this study challenges long-established models of assembly formation, location, and naming. The paper concludes by providing an entirely new perspective on what place-names associated with legal practice and judicial administration might signal about the genesis and organization of early medieval systems of power and justice.
