Fabrik & Bolig (Factory & Dwelling)
The 8-page newsletter of the Society for the Preservation of the Industrial Heritage Selskabet til bevaring af industrimiljøer is the only periodical of its kind in the Nordic countries. Members eceive two a year (subscribers can choose a pdf-version by e-mail) and an annual journal for 150 Dkr. ($25/€20).
The journal mainly publishes scholarly articles, such as the adaptive reuse of the large paper mill at Silkeborg, the struggle to decide the railway system in Copenhagen in the late 19th century, and a “modern” kind of industrial archaeology drawing on oral sources, written sources and documentation of the physical remains of the post-war handicraft village at Greve near Copenhagen. 2006 articles will deal with the excavation of the Copper Works in Frederiksværk.
