During four weeks in September 2022 we conducted an archaeological excavation of the site in Uppsala where Sweden’s first botanical garden once lay. In this environment, two of Sweden’s most famous scholars lived and worked – Olof Rudbeck (1630–1702) and Carl von Linné (1707–1778).
This excavation offered a unique opportunity to study material remains from the households of these celebrated botanists, including buildings, gardens and a fish pond. The results from the excavation will provide new insights into the everyday life of these historical figures who were active in the 15th and 16th century.
Wednesdays 37/8, 7/9, 14/9, 21/9 and 28/9.
At 11.30 (in english) 13.30 (swedish) and 17.30 (swedish).
