Baltic-Finns and Scandinavians explores how the breakthrough in comparative-historical linguistics affected European ethnohistoric thought. The investigation has a multi-disciplinary approach by including intellectual history and the histories of Finno-Ugric studies and linguistics. It contains a case study, which examines what impact the investigations of comparative-historical linguistics, linguistic ethnohistory and other auxiliary sciences had on narratives about the early history of northern Europe.
