Abstract [en]

The Map of Nordic Legends (in Swedish: ’Sägenkartan’) is a collaboration between the Institute for Language and Folklore in Sweden (Isof), The Norwegian Folklore Archives (NFS), and the Swedish Literary Society in Finland (SLS). The map tells the legends of giants’ stone-throwing (the folkloristic explanations for glacial erratics), witches, the nixie, and encounters with gnomes, werewolves and the Devil himself. The map consists of 10.000 archive records, collected from archive collections and printed publications on legends. Among the legends, the visitor to the site will also find folklore connected with agriculture, for instance about the harvest (Sw. ’skörd’), the farm (Sw. ‘bondgård’), and farm animals (Sw: ’kreatur’, ’kritter’), including horses, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, cats and dogs (Sw: ‘häst’, ‘ko’, ‘gris’, ‘får’, ‘getter’, ‘katt’, ‘hund’).
