Helsingborg 1710

I thought it might be interesting to see what events occurred in 1710 to see what is going on in the world of the tercentenary - something I have been vaguely following since the Sedgemoor 300th in 1985.
Well this battle between the Danes and the Swedes in the Great Northern War in late February is next.
Later in the year we have the Battle of Zaragoza in Spain which is being reenacted later in the summer - see here - anyone know of any more 300th anniversary events?

The translation of the label: "The victory received by the Swedes against the Danes in Scania"

Sadly the anniversary will not be celebrated in the town of Helsingborg. One of the top politicians said no, and that was it. Politically correct and then they complain that the kids have no grasp of history.
