Revisit the historical articles from our newsletter Lundensaren

We have gathered many of the previous historical articles from our newsletter Lundensaren for you. Maybe you missed a few or would like to reread one. There really is an article for all moods and interests. For instance, what does the beast of storsjön in Jämtland have to do with Lund University? Or maybe you are more interested in reading about murder and love scandals. If so, the articles “A bone of the devil” and “When Alfons met Polly” are the perfect read. If that is too dramatic, you can always get to know the first female students at Lund University and the struggles they encountered.

These are only a few of the historical articles from the past years. You can read any of them in English or Swedish, just click on the title of your liking to start reading.
