It can definitely be handy to check a map occasionally to understand where things are happening in the story – especially if you are not too familiar with the geography of Sweden! So we have made a few maps including the locations of Swedish counties (Landskap), battles, towns and what is happening with Sweden’s neighbours!

Of course, there weren’t too many detailed map makers back in the early Middle Ages, so a lot of these boundaries are subject to interpretation, and these maps are made without 100% due care to scale. It is more to give a rough idea of what is happening in Sweden in the various time periods.
