A Flatpack History of Sweden

41. An Island of its Own; The History of Gotland So Far

September 19, 2021

This time we introduce a new landmass to our chronological story: The island of Gotland! We cover thousands of years of Gotland's history, with a focus on trade and how it fits into the story of the Baltic Sea and the surrounding regions. We'll see why as time goes on, the island becomes more and more integrated with the Swedish Kingdom, but it definitely is a gradual process. We then look at the origins of a new northern European trade network!


Includes our funniest/worst mispronunciation blooper so far at the end of the episode!
