The Finnfors robbers are going again

Nordanåteatern, Skellefteå

Here the story is told how a documented event in 1524 around eight robbers from Norway later became a real robbery story with violence, sorcery, abducted grass girl and escape on a ski.

The story has become both novels, theater, comic book, picture book and even folk music performance, all told in their own way, where myth, documented events and folk tales are mixed. So what is the "truth" and can it be found in the archives?

Ulf Lundström, local historian at Skellefteå Museum, and Anneli Rundström Karlsson, archive educator at the Folk Movement Archive in Västerbotten on Nordanå, try to uncover facts and fiction about one of Skellefteå's most mythical events.
