- ItemOpen AccessNorwegian millstone quarries in the face of European competition and cooperation 18th - 19 centuries(Universitat de Lleida. Departament d'Història. Secció d'Arqueologia, Prehistòria i Història Antiga, 2019) Belmont, AlainAlthough geographically outside the heart of Europe, Norwegian millstone production was far from isolated from the rest of the continent. This article is based on research undertaken in French historical archives, a series of 18th- and 19th-century written sources, fi eldwork, and the comparison of Norwegian millstone quarries with over hundreds of millstone quarries recorded throughout Europe. The initial results indicate that Norwegian millstone quarries were subject to the same international rules of commerce as their contemporary counterparts. Norway therefore exported their millstones at certain periods of time and were subject to the import of foreign millstones at others.
