Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Finnveden or Finnheden is one of the ancient small lands of Sm land. It corresponded to the hundreds of Sunnerbo Hundred, stbo Hundred and V stbo Hundred. Finnveden had its own judicial system and laws as the other small lands. Finnveden is situated around lake Bolmen and the river Lagan. Most runestones in Finnveden describe men who died in England. Finnveden is today divided and is a part of Hallands l n, Kronobergs l n and J nk pings l n. It was first mentioned by Jordanes when he referred to its population as the Finnaithae when describing the nations of Scandza in Getica. The Scandinavian placenames Finnveden, Finnmark and the province of Finland are all thought to derive from Finn, an ancient Germanic word for the Finnic people inhabiting areas of Fenno-Scandia and Scandinavia. The connection between the names Finnveden, Finnmark and Finland is not entirely clear. However, it is known that in addition to the Uralic Sami people, the Finnic tribe of Kvens have historically inhabited areas of Scandinavia which today are part of Norway and Sweden.show more
