      During the seventh and eighth centuries, the Swedes were merchant seamen well known for their far-reaching trade. In the ninth century, Nordic Vikings raided and ravaged the European continent as far as the Black and Caspian Seas. During the 11th and 12th centuries, Sweden gradually became a unified Christian kingdom that later included Finland. Queen Margaret of Denmark united all the Nordic lands in the "Kalmar Union" in 1397. Continual tension within the countries and within the union gradually led to open conflict between the Swedes and the Danes in the 15th century. The union's final disintegration in the early 16th century brought on a long-lived rivalry between Norway and Denmark on one side and Sweden and Finland on the other.
      In the 16th century, Gustav Vasa fought for an independent Sweden, crushing an attempt to restore the Kalmar Union and laying the foundation for modern Sweden. At the same time, he broke with the Catholic Church and established the Reformation. During the 17th century, after winning wars against Denmark, Russia, and Poland, Sweden-Finland (with scarcely more than 1 million inhabitants) emerged as a great power. Its contributions during the Thirty Years War under Gustav II Adolf (Gustavus Adolphus) determined the political as well as the religious balance of power in Europe. By 1658, Sweden ruled several provinces of Denmark as well as what is now Finland, Ingermanland (in which St. Petersburg is located), Estonia, Latvia, and important coastal towns and other areas of northern Germany.

    Sweden History
    Where did the Swedes come from?
    In pursuit of a more accurate evaluation of Scandinavian history, some historical questions will have no easy answers. For example, who were the Svear and Daner people who lived in the Baltic region (Denmark and southern Sweden) in the BC era? Who were the Erul people who lived in the Baltic region at the same time? Were they all kin from Thracian warrior tribes?
    Fall of Troy . The city was completely devastated, which is verified by the fact that the city was vacant to about 700 BC.
    Sicambria about 1150 BC. The Romans would later refer to the inhabitants as Sicambrians. The locals (nomadic Scythians) named these Trojan conquerors the "Iron people", or the Aes in their language. The Aes (also As, Asa, Asen, Aesar, Aesir, Aesire Ćsir or Asir ) soon built their famous fortified city Aesgard or Asgard , described as "Troy in the north." Various other sources collaborate this, stating the Trojans landed on the eastern shores with their superior weaponry, and claimed land. The area became known as

Oscarian era (late 19th century) Industrialization World War II Cold war Sweden Post–Cold War ... e Modern Sweden emerged out of the Kalmar Union formed in 1397 and by the unification of the country by King Gustav Vasa in the 16th century. In the 17th century Sweden expanded its territories to form the Swedish empire . Most of these conquered territories had to be given up during the 18th century. In the early 19th century Finland and the remaining territories outside the Scandinavian peninsula were lost. After its last war in 1814, Sweden entered into a personal union with Norway which lasted until 1905. Since 1814, Sweden has been at peace, adopting a non-aligned foreign policy in peacetime and neutrality in wartime

    Basic Facts

    Sheet Music Plus

    Trombone (Fr., It. trombone ; Ger. Posaune
    A brass aerophone with a cup-shaped mouthpiece and predominantly cylindrical bore. In its most familiar form it is the tenor-baritone counterpart of the orchestral trumpet but it is characterized by a telescopic slide with which the player varies the length of the tube (except in the valve trombone): hence the term 'slide trombone' (Fr. Trombone coulisse, Ger. Zugposaune, It. trombone a tiro; Fr. and Eng. up to the 18th century, saqueboute, sackbut). Both the Italian and German n me for trombone are derived from term- for trumpet: Trombone (large trumpet) from the Italian tromba (trumpet), and Posaune from the Buzune, derived in turn from the French buisine (straight trumpet). The etymology of saqueboute whence English 'sackbut', 'sagbut', 'shagbolt' etc.) is not certain but is probably from Old French sacquer. 'to draw out' (e.g. a sword), though a Spanish derivation, sacabuche, 'draw out the innards', has also been suggested.

    Sweden History and Agriculture
    Influences from foreign countries have always made a country what it is, like the Indian influences brought into the United Kingdom over the centuries. Sweden history is packed full of prominent influences beginning a long time back in the days of the glacial period when, from the South and East of the country, Northern Sweden was introduced to processes of hunting and gathering fishing and killing meat to survive was a part of life. Later on in the 18th Century, as people married off and families grew, families would live in barns around tiny villages which would often be centred around a church. Any land nearby to the villages would be sectioned off and farmed by the different groups that would be allocated those specific portions of land, each group having plenty of land to work. Although the amount of land was plenty, the production of that land was quite low (around 2% of the land was cultivated and farmed) which would soon increase as groups of people from other countries moved in. As the population grew, Sweden history tells use that land would continuously be sectioned off and split so that different families had their own plot so, as the population grew the production of food from farming increased substantially over the next few centuries. In addition to the food consumables that come from the farming and agriculture in Sweden history, the country is also responsible for a large amount of forestry exports. The Scandinavian soft and hard wood is exported into countries like the UK and as far as America in the form of timber, paper and wood pulp � a massively important factor in the countries status in the world. Other countries continue to show huge interest in the ability of Sweden to produce high quality exports in the form of both forest products and food products, demand is always high and despite the increasing volume of harvesting that has been conducted in the country they continue to gain wood resources as well as caring for the environmental impact of the forestry industry and the agricultural industry.

    Sweden - History and Urban Culture in Sweden
    Making up one of many Scandinavian countries, and being most pleasant and accessible, Sweden has strong foreign influences with links from the United States. This is obvious in many accents you can hear when you visit, though more recently the European Union began to influence the country too. Sweden is a beautiful country made up of mixed cultures, making it a wonderful place to visit both for business and pleasure. The largest of it's cities, Stockholm, is it's capital and well known for it's beautiful harbour and open areas. Due to it's lack of manual and heavy-industry jobs, the capital city provides jobs mainly within the service industry, making it a trendy place to be with many office workers enjoying the urban social life. Located on the Eastern coast of Sweden, Stockholm city sits on the edge of Lake Mälaren which flows into the Baltic Sea. The fourteen islands that make up Stockholm mean that the majority of the City Centre sits on water. In fact, a whole third of the city is water - with the other two thirds made up of buildings and green areas. Residents here are environmentally aware and the city has been given the mark of having the cleanest air, so although Stockholm is a large city, it's not typically a city like London or New York. Stockholm is home to the Swedish Parliament, Government and Municipality in addition to it being the party capital of Sweden, which brings young singles, honeymooners and couples to experience both the hectic social life and the wonderfully rich history that the city has to offer.
