Adam of Bremen's history of the see of Hamburg and of Christian
missions in northern Europe from the late eighth to the late
eleventh century is the primary source of our knowledge of the
history, geography, and ethnography of the Scandinavian and Baltic
regions and their peoples before the thirteenth century. Arriving
in Bremen in 1066 and soon falling under the tutelage of Archbishop
Adalbert, who figures prominently in the narrative, Adam recorded
the centuries-long campaign by his church to convert Slavic and
Scandinavian peoples. His History vividly reflects the firsthand
accounts he received from travelers, traders, and missionaries on
the peripheries of medieval Europe.
