1814 from below
The narrative about 1814 in Norway has largely been a national narrative, about kings and princes, the political elite, the constitution and war and peace. But how has 1814 looked through the glasses of historians working on local or regional history? What has attracted their interest, or has it even been much interest in 1814 from a local perspective at all? A new bibliography about historical literature from 1814 that has been written on the local and regional level has recently been published at www.lokahistoriewiki.no. The work has been conducted by the Norwegian Institute of Local history. With the new bibliography as starting point, this article suggest some answers on the questions above, as well as suggesting some fields of interest where the local and regional literature can contribute in the greater understanding about 1814 in Norwegian history.
