Newspaper Index proudly presents: The first newspaper in Scandinavia (1749) now online. Thу first Scandinavian newspaper has been scanned an put online.
Yesterday I was holding newspaper history in my hands. The first omnibus newspaper ever published in Scandinavia from January 1749. The owner - a gentleman who had in it in his family’s possession since it was published - let me scan it on his flatbed.

Here starts the international reporting.

Hanover: Several people killed and about 40 injured when lightning hit a church in Diepholz.
Paris: Speculations about where Prince Edward might be. In Avignon? Maybe in Switzerland?
