Agrarian history is a historical discipline that covers the development from earliest times to the present. The subject deals with agricultural production, technological development, social and economic conditions, people in agrarian societies and their relation to nature, landscape and society at large. Emphasis is on research and education on northern European conditions, including Sweden, even though a wider international agrarian history also plays a role in the subject area.
