History of the Norwegian People, Vol. 1 by Knut Gjerset (1865 - 1936).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/history-of-the-norwegian-people-vol-1-by-knut-gjerset/
A detailed and exhaustive history of the Norwegian People, written in two volumes. The author, Knut Gjerset, was born in Western Norway in 1865 and immigrated to Chippewa County, Minnesota, in the US with his parents in 1871 and his brother Oluf later got elected to public office there. He received a B.A. in Literature from the University of Minnesota, and also studied at John's Hopkins University from 1895-1896, and the University of Heidelberg, where he was awarded a PhD, from 1896-1898. This first volume deals with the Norwegian History from the earliest times, to the early 14th century and covers topics suchs as: Prehistoric Norway and iron and Bronze age cultures in the area, the Viking era, The Christianization of Norway and some related information on Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Shetland/Orkney Islands, etc., Early kings of Norway, Norway in the Crusades, and foreign policy reformations at the beginning of the Late Middle Ages.

  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

OK, I can do this. :) I did scratch my head on the title change. LOL! I'll get to setting it up in a while.

I'm not sure if you've made enough posts yet to get your PM privileges back again. Would you please tell me your former user name again (when you can), so I can enter you back into Inquisition of Spain?
