A Seminar concerning castles and ancient fortresses

Tomorrow (Friday 18th) I plan to attend a seminar about castles held by the Swedish Association for castle studies (Link in Swedish). The program promises some interesting seminars such as:

Professor Ulf Näsman will talk about ancient fortresses on the southern part of the Island Öland and the societies that built them.

One example of these ancient fortresses is Ismantorps borg, read more here.

Next in line is Fil.Dr. Anna Lihammer will speak on the subject Trelleborgar in their context. Trelleborgar: Trelleborgar are large round ancient fortresses of a type mainly found in Scania and Denmark dated to the Iron Age.

 
Fil.Dr. Peter Carelli will speak of the castle of Helsingborg during the middle ages. The castle is a made out of a large tower, dated to the 13th century. Link to a picture here.

And finally Mats Sandin and Tom Wennberg from Gothenborg city museum will speak of the excavations at the middle age castle Älvsborg.

I will take some notes though not so detailed as those concerning the Osteological Associations seminar. I might have missed someone’s title or gotten it wrong, if so please contact me.
