    Default Thousands of Swedish real world 17th century maps

    The National Archives of Sweden has recently released 12000 large scale, high resolution, maps from the early and mid 17th century.

    You need a (free) plug-in to see the maps:

    I so much wish that I new Sweden only to be able to understand more about these maps. I'm sure that when I have some leisure time I'm going to check them out in more detail than I did now.
    Have some rep for posting about this amazing resource.

    Among those 12000 it can be a little bit tricky to find good maps but here are a few good collections:
