The Spoils of War. Swedish Looting of the Commonwealth in the 17th and 18th Centuries

The aim of the project is to compile a catalogue—both online and printed—of war booty and trophies held in the collections of public cultural institutions in Stockholm and Uppsala, looted during the Deluge and the Great Northern War. At the same time, detailed research will be carried out in Swedish archives and museums with the aim to gather source materials on the organisation of looting in the territory of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, the routes of exporting looted objects and their storage sites outside the Swedish capital, and to prepare documentation—both scholarly and photographic—of the identified spoils of war with the view of producing the catalogues and further expanding the database.
