During the past year there have been a lot of activities in Oravais and Vörå concerning the war in 1808 - 09 because it was 200 years since the war between Sweden and Russia took place there. For example have the pupils taken part of battlefield archeology together with archeologists and looked for bullets and buttons and other thing that you can find on a battlefield. Time travels have been taken place at Furirsbostället - Fänrik Ståls Center, to educate about the everyday live in 1808.
