    The Varangians in Arabic Sources Called AlíRus Dominated the Trade on the Russian Rivers in the 700s and 800s

    In this excerpt from The Gotlandic Merchant Republic and its Medieval Churches, Tore Gannholm mentions the Rus (Varangian) Khaganate, the connection to the Khazars and more besides.

    In Finnish, Sweden is known as Ruotsi. The area of the Baltic sea is known as Roslagen (https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roslagen), and the Varangians carried that name to eastern Europe around Kyiv, giving the name Rus', Ruthenian, and latter Russia.
