‘I laid the foundation stone to this house’ : Aristocratic messages in Glimmingehus castle, Scania

Hansson, Martin LU (2018) In Château Gaillard. Etudes de castellologie médiévale 28. p.155-160
Abstract (Swedish)
The purpose of this paper is to discuss decorated stone tablets with coats of arms and memorial texts found on castle walls. The example considered here is Glimmingehus in Scania, in southern Sweden, erected in the late 15th century. Tablets with texts, coat of arms and ornaments are to be found both outside and inside the castle. The messages on the tablets can be said to promote a world of an elite male by emphasizing his personal network and lineage.
