The Institute for Comparative Research in Human Culture was established in Oslo in 1922 as a neutral arena for collaboration among scholars of the former combatant nations after World War II. Professor Edvard Bull (1881-1932) proposed the addition of settlement studies to the programme in 1928, as a field in which Norway could supply valuable evidence for international comparison. Investigations of agrarian settlement and peasant communities in Norway continued until 1975, when due to financial difficulties this activity came to an end. This work made a significant contribution to research in Norwegian agrarian history, ethnology and historical geography. The author of the present paper presents her personal recollections of this work, starting with her early observations in 1938.
