      At this point it might be of interest to note modern
      Scandinavian writings on the Eruli. Some of it has
      probably during the years been mentioned on the
      list but for newcomers it might be of interest
      with a short review. Tore In his excellent
      books _The Origin of Svear_ and _Gotland Oester-
      sjoens paerla_ in detail presents how the
      arrival of the Eruli coincides with the flourishing
      Svea culture in Uppland. And he draws his
      conclusions.

      Of interest is also Professor Alvar Ellegaard "Who
      Were the Eruli?" in the journal Scandia, Vol. 53:1,
      1987. Personally I do not agree with Professor
      Ellegaard's conclusion that the Eruli were a roving
      band of Germanic warriors and not a people but the
      extensive article contains much of interest regarding the Eruli.

      In an article more for popular consumption Professor
      Lars Hermodsson (No2/1995, Populaer historia)
      published an article on the Eruli ("Herulerna - vittfarna
      vildar med nordiskt ursprung").

      For the German and English reading there are the
      detailed and scholarly articles of Marvin Taylor.

      The conclusion ought to be that there in modern time
      is quite interest in the Eruli in Scandinavia and one can
      only hope that Tore will continue to explore the angle
      on tthe Eruli presented in his earlier books. Although
      there has been some writing on the Eruli on the
      Black Sea elsewhere Scandinavia ought to be
      central in research on the Eruli.

      Erulically
