Abstract [en]

This paper is focused on the consequences of the drawn-out conflict, known as ”the great northern war”, which lasted from the start of the 18th century up to 1721. More precisely the focus is at the economic situation facing the agrarian lower classes during these years, as well the nature in which their discontent presented itself. The study is restricted to one particular region of early-modern Sweden, Jämtland. The subjects that are examined are:

- The amount of tax that were not paid or delivered to the proper authorities in time.

- Contemporary depictions of the situation for the agrarian lower classes in Jämtland.

- Taxes from earlier years yet to be paid.- Abandoned farms during the period.

- Crop failures and their connection to the economic situation.

- The so called ”everyday forms of resistance” in Jämtland as an expression of the people’s discontent towards the ruling figures in Stockholm – manifested against their local representatives.
