Recent years have seen an increased focus on Scandinavia. ‘Nordic Noir’, with its gloomy landscapes and characters, now exists alongside more traditional conceptions, such as the modern welfare state, trolls, mermaids and polar bears. What is often left out of these narratives are the connections – academic, political, cultural – that the Scandinavian countries have always had with the rest of Europe and the world. UCL’s Collections hold a number of original items which provide a fascinating insight into Scandinavian history and culture.
