Richard Dybeck visited all the districts of Sweden to study its ancient history. He was educated in the field of law, but soon turned to his real interest - the ancient history of his home country. He published a number of pamphlets and books within this field. In Stockholm he also gained popularity as a performer of Scandinavian folklore songs. Scarce.
