Abstract

Preparations are underway at the Royal Swedish Academy of Agriculture and Forestry’s (KSLA) unit for forest and agricultural history for publishing Swedish editions of three pioneering works on agriculture, dating from the Roman Empire. The first publication to appear, in 2009, was Columella’s Twelve Books of Agriculture, translated by Sten Hedberg and including twelve essay commentaries by Swedish scholars, several of them associated with SLU (the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences). Work on the remaining two publications will begin in the autumn of 2010.
