In the summer course in Agrarian History you learn to understand how the landscape has been influenced by agrciutlure, by farmers work and the grazing of farm animals, and how and why land use has chaged through history. The course includes also an overview of Swedish agrarian history with regard to traditional animal husbandry, cultivation and technologies, and basic terminology of the field. During field excursions we are identifying and discussing indicators of various relics of different times, still visible in the rural landscape, as well as biotopes and vegetation favoured by and related to agricultural cultivation, and impact of fertilizing.
