The Battle of Lund - The Monument


SVL 250px-Monumentet, Lund

The monument commemorating the Battle of Lund was inaugurated in 1883 at Lerbäckshög at the initiative of the Regional Historical and Archaeological Society. Designed by Helgo Zettervall, it was originally built of cement but replaced in granite in 1930. The message of the Monument is reconciliation between Denmark and Sweden and not a victory for Sweden.
