    Thun, Terje; Svarva, Helene Løvstrand (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    The Black Death (1349–1350 in Norway) is often cited as the cause of a severe population decline and building hiatus in the middle of the 14th century. This paper analyses this hypothesis by matching the Black Death with ...
