This was posted on a Medieval Encampments list.  I thought someone might be
interested in an Internet course on the Vikings, taught from Sweden.


Viking courses Dear Viking Friend,

Gotland University is marketing two new University courses open on an
international level. The courses are fully in English. One course is an
Internet course to be given this spring, and next autumn. The second course
is a field course dealing with the Viking Landscape, and concentrated to an
excavation of a tremendous rich Viking harbour and trading place on the
island of Gotland (http://frojel.hgo.se). Gotland is an extremely rich
Viking island, where there have been found more then 700 gold and silver
hoards from Viking Age. To give you some ideas about Gotland, please visit

The University has now, finally, got all the information up, as well as an
application form. I might ad that University courses in Sweden always are
free of charge. You might have to register at the students 
, and you
have to pay for the literature. But besides that, there are no fee for the
course itself.

When it comes to the field course, we do arrange a package for housing,
food, local transportation and equipment etc. for those who have problem to
arrange the living. So, if you are interested to find out more about
Vikings,or take part in the discovery of their history, please visit the
link below. I would of course be most grateful if you could help me spread
the word around, like putting it on different email lists etc.


Best regards
