In the centuries to come, Sweden would become a Christian kingdom. At the end of the XIV century Sweden united with Denmark, Norway, and Finland to become one of the most powerful nations in Europe. The Kingdom of Sweden reached its peak of power in the XVII century. However, after the Great Northern War with Russia in 1700 Sweden was no longer a great European power. Nevertheless, throughout history Sweden played a very important part in European affairs. Sweden remained neutral during WWI and WWII. Join us in discussing and learning about the past of this remarkable country. 3124 | Harkins | KTD | AC 104 7 Mondays 2:10–4pm | Jan 29-Mar 19 $99 (MF $1) | ESCOM $77 (MF $1) Home & Garden NEW | Bold and Dramatic Arrangements Local flowers are limited in Winter, so this class will focus on the unusual palette of flowers and foliage provided by the warm weather states.
