Abstract

[Notes and news]
From the early 15th century, ships of the Hanseatic
League made their way across the North
Atlantic to the Shetland Islands. Although the bare
historical outlines of commerce are largely known,
the details of the interaction between the merchants
from northern Germany who spent three, four or
five months trading fish with the Shetlanders still
remain obscure.
