Gth Chapter 1: Geographical Introduction.
Claudius Ptolemaeus, an excellent describer of the world, has made mention of it in the second book of his work, saying: "There is a great island situated in the surge of the Northern Ocean, Scandza by name, in the shape of a juniper leaf with bulging sides that taper down to a point at a long end."
In the northern part of the island the race of the Adogit live, who are said to have continual light in midsummer for forty days and nights, and who likewise have no clear light in the winter season for the same number of days and nights.
