SWEDEN.—The archives have not yet been centralized, and large collections exist at the various ministries. The most important records, however, are the Royal Archives (Rigsarchivet), pre-served in the island of Riddarholmen, Stockholm. A great many publications have been based on these: there are for instance an inventory, Middlelanden fran Svenska Rigsarchivet ; a work bearing generally on Scandinavian history, Handlingar rorande Scandinnaviens historia ; and the Diplomatarium Suecicum, which is still in progress. The English Record Office has seven volumes of transcripts from the Stockholm archives, with a report. Private collections are numerous and valuable, and a society for exploring and publishing such records is supported by the state.
