From King Charles XII to Bellman

Swedish 17th and 18th century manuscripts

Notable manuscripts in this group include the collection in the Archeology compartment (Fornkunskap - F), which houses reports and notations from 17th century inventories of antiquities and cultural heritage monuments – valuable sources for Swedish archeology and art history.

Two examples are the collections of Johan Peringskiöld, known as the "Searches for Antiquities", and, in what may be the most remarkable manuscript in this area, Johannes Bureus’s (1568-1652) enormous volume of memoranda, "Sumlen".
