Fornvännen is one of Scandinavia’s main scholarly journals about archaeology, Medieval art and adjacent disciplines. Its first volume appeared in 1906, and for the past several decades it’s been issued quarterly. I’ve been an avid reader since 1990 and one of the journal’s editors since 1999.

I’m very proud to announce that the first 100 volumes of Fornvännen are now available freely on the web! Roughly 3000 PDF files including complete scans, illustrations and all, and searchable text! The site has an excellent search & browse engine.

Most papers in the journal are in Scandinavian languages, but for decades each one has had an English abstract, summary and figure captions. Also, papers are increasingly being written entirely in English.

My warmest thanks to Kerstin Assarsson-Rizzi and Gun Larsson of the Library of the Academy of Letters for making this happen, and to the Academy itself for funding the project!
