the Russo - Swedish war of 1808 -09Tuesday, 11/5/02, 11:51 AM
Scandinavia was somewhat of a backwater during these wars, but this conflict could have easily blossomed into a wider conflict, particularly if the planned invasion of mainland Sweden had proceeded. With unusual Napoleonic armies such as the Norwegians featuring along side some famous names from the period such as Sir John Moore, Bernadotte and Ney, the campaign has interest.

The Heruli tribe 268 - 568 ADWednesday, 5/15/02, 11:05 AM
The heyday of the Heruli (or Eril) tribe lasted 300 years when they were hired as mercenaries in the Roman Empire and some of them at least settled in the empire. Thanks to their pay in gold we know something about Scandinavian history in that restless time of battling Attila the Hun and establishing the Catholic Church. We hear about the West and the South Heruli, and also of the fierce Cimbri and of the first Danes (Sideni).
