Swedes invade Russia!

Ok…so the headline is more than a thousand years old but the fact remains that the Swedes moved into what’s now called Russia way back in the 9th century.  They were called the Rus and quickly started running things.

EnglishRussia has a nice photo spread of a Rus-era festival (which makes Renaissance fairs look positively futuristic).  There are some pretty good shots in there…check ’em out.
