From Vikings, Goths and Empires, to World war neutrality and then Ikea, Sweden is a nation on the edge of Europe that has played a significant part in its history. Why so blonde? Why so tall? In this course we will explore the history of this rather content, high taxed nation with its similarities to New Zealand, its own church, a contentious land-grabbing history with its neighbours, and an apparent love of meatballs?
