Ancient Powers
of the
Baltic Sea
An Historical Outline Outline
by Matti Klinge
 An Historical Outline Outlines the Historical background to the events in the Finnish epic, The Kalevala. It discusses the historical developments in Sweden-Finland, Estonia, and the entire Baltic Sea during the Middle Ages, when the sea united the countries border ing on it. Ancient Powers of the Baltic Sea is a significantly updated version in English translation of Professor Klinge's 1984 book Muinaisuutemme merivallat in Finnish and östersjövälden in Swedish. The volume was translated by Professor Ain Haas who is a prominent professor of sociology in the USA. Finland's pre-eminent historian, Matti Klinge has enhanced the book with 75 wonderful historical documents and maps as illustrations. The book has generated some degree of controversy and serves as a thoughtful, eye-opening contribution to Medieval history and the European connections of old.  ISBN: 978-0-9783488-0-9
