This is a study of how the past is experienced, thought about and given form in a parish, Anundsjö, in mid-north Sweden. It is not meant to be a chronicle of what actually happened, but rather an attempt to find out how the past appears in both structured and unstructured ways - a study of the past as a component of culture (cf. Tonkin, 1983).
