Bergen

There is a large corpus from the 11th-century foundation of Bergen, where Types 9 and 13 were dominant (see Grieg 1933). Gitte Hansen (2005) has recently published the material from 11th- and 12th-century contexts at the Bryggen site, so a little more may be said about this early phase of the town. There is only a single comb (Type 9) from horizon 4 (dated c. AD 1100-1120s), but combs are much more common in horizon 5 (1120s to 1170). There is a single possible example of Type 6, but Type 9 combs dominate. In contrast, double-sided forms are scarce, though become common in later deposits (author's data). Full publication of the collection is eagerly anticipated.
