The Portal

The Andvari Portal, the objective and final outcome of our international collaborative project, will provide integrated access to various collections and databases of northern European art and artifacts of the early medieval period (4th–12th centuries).

The Portal (still in development) will include the following features:

The initial users and primary audience of the Portal will be scholars and museum experts, as well as database owners who wish to share their collections. As the Portal develops, it will be available for pedagogical use and the public. Users will benefit from the convenience of integrated online access to dispersed collections and from diverse search methods that will identify relationships between objects.
