This week – 9 -16 July – I am acting as curator of Sweden – on the official tourist board twitter account @sweden.
I’m working for the gov agency Swedish National Heritage Board with open data and new media.
I was born in Sweden and lived here all my life.
I spent a major part of my professional life in the trenches doing field archaeology – specializing in Late Iron Age – Early Medieval period) (AD 200 – 1200)
I live on the island Gotland in a small town called Visby, which is a World Heritage Site. Some people call Gotland ‘Calcatraz’ because of its isolated location right in the middle of the Baltic Sea, and the fact that the island is formed by a huge chunk of limestone (kalk = calcium).
I’ll try to give you guys an impression of what ordinary life is living on this beautiful island – pros and cons – and I’ll definitely be sharing some images (yes, I´m a photo nerd). And digitization will certainly be one of the main subjects during my “curator-of-@sweden”-week.
My personal twitter account is @arkland_swe.
