Overview
In this first volume of his narrative history of Sweden, Vilhelm Moberg, one of Sweden's greatest historians, embarks on a whistle-stop tour from its first prehistoric inhabitants to the late medieval period. Arguing that history is not about a small group of individuals and decision-makers, but about its people, he throws the spotlight on the peasant population of Sweden. This concise history deals with the prehistoric period in one short chapter before moving on swiftly to the early medieval period, Viking raiders, the arrival of Christianity and the emergence of a warrior class and powerful magnates. The life of the mediaeval man', the arrival of the Black Death in Sweden and the reign of Queen Margareta in the early 18th century round off te volume.
