A History of Scandinavia
Legal history is a well-established discipline in all five Nordic countries Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. In the eighteenth century, historical sources began to be approached more critically. As elsewhere in nineteenth-century Europe, legal history as a separate branch of legal studies started to develop in the Nordic countries in the vein of the Historical School of Jurisprudence. Fredrik Peter Brandt from Norway was the Norwegian pioneer of legal history where, as in Sweden, Johan August Posse and Knut Olivecrona carried the flag for the discipline. The shift towards modern history writing and source criticism was, however, slow and gradual, and it was actually towards the end of the nineteenth century that the achievements of modern historical science started to influence legal historical research in the Nordic countries.

The history of Scandinavia is the history of the geographical region of Scandinavia and its peoples. The region is in northern Europe , and consists of Denmark , Norway , and Sweden. Finland and Iceland are at times, especially in English-speaking contexts, considered part of Scandinavia. Little evidence remains in Scandinavia of the Stone Age , the Bronze Age , or the Iron Age except limited numbers of tools created from stone, bronze, and iron, some jewelry and ornaments, and stone burial cairns. One important collection that exists, however, is a widespread and rich collection of stone drawings known as petroglyphs. During the Weichselian glaciation, almost all of Scandinavia was buried beneath a thick permanent sheet of ice and the Stone Age was delayed in this region.
Nordic territories that are not part of Scandinavia:. The broader definition is similar to what are locally called the Nordic countries , which also include the remote Norwegian islands of Svalbard and Jan Mayen and Greenland , a constituent country within the Kingdom of Denmark. The geography of Scandinavia is extremely varied. Notable are the Norwegian fjords , the Scandinavian Mountains , the flat, low areas in Denmark and the archipelagos of Sweden and Norway. Sweden has many lakes and moraines , legacies of the ice age , which ended about ten millennia ago.

Swedish and Finnish membership in the alliance would have been unthinkable. The pattern of Scandinavian security policies seemed set, and the debates remained surprisingly spirited despite their numbing repetitiousness. Unable to display preview.
