Gudrun Norstedt
I am a PhD student focused on forest history, more precisely Sami land use and resource control in the boreal forest.

Presentation

I am a graduate student in forest history with professor Lars Östlund as supervisor and Anna-Lena Axelsson as assistant supervisor. My research focuses on Sami land use and resource control in the boreal forest. An important part of my research concerns Ume Sami district (lappmark) in the 17th century, but I have also been working with the Pite Sami district in the 19th century. My latest study was done in the Krycklan encatchment in Vindeln, where I used high-resolution Lidar data to map cultural remains in a forested landscape.

Background

I combine a MSc in biology and many years of field work in the forests of Northern Sweden with a keen interest in history.
