Lund University - British History Class


As I have mentioned before, Lund University has a very large number of classes taught in English and I really wanted to sit in on a lecture.

Vidar Onsberg

Vidar is a follower of the blog and knew of my wish to sit in on a class. He is a student at L.U. majoring in history with a desire to become a teacher some day. He invited me to join him today to sit in his "British History" class during a two hour lecture.

We met near the train station and talked for about an hour before the start of his class. It turns out that Vidar is also the right guard for the Limhamn Griffins who we play in our season opener a week from this Saturday!

He also let it be known that he is proud to be a Green Bay Packers fan.

Besides his goal to teach history, he wants to continue as an American football coach once his playing days are over.

We covered a lot of ground in two hours starting with King James I, Guy Fawkes' Gunpowder Plot, the Peace Treaty of Utrecht, the Georgian Period, the Cabinet System, the American colonies and the American Revolutionary War.

It was of great interest as I had hoped, THANK YOU VIDAR!

Practice tonight was well attended and competitive, a good sign as the start of league play approaches.

I assume you omitted the part where you took him out at the knees so as to preserve deniability. Smart.

I suspect you were far more subtle and simply took him to have Mexican food.
