Creator/Principal investigator(s):

Johan Berg - Stockholms universitet, Kulturgeografiska institutionen

Staffan Helmfrid - Stockholms universitet, Kulturgeografiska institutionen

Description:

This study is an investigation of the agrarian landscape in the western part of Ostergotland County (in Sweden). The study was published in the form of a dissertation in Human Geography written (in German) by Steffan Helmfrid, and defended in 1962. Two maps were produced as a part of the dissertation, based on historical material. These maps show the agrarian landscape as it was around 1640. Helmfrid's analogue process for producing these maps was unique for the 1960s. These two maps are made available here.
