Sweden - Map Locator Geography Legends and Legendary People

Beowulf - according to scholars - takes place on the island of Zealand (Sjaelland) not far from Copenhagen.

Scholars also believe that Beowulf, the epic’s hero, was a Geat.  If Geats lived in the southwestern part of Sweden, as experts believe, we can see from this map that not much sea separated the Danes from the Geats.

Under normal conditions, it would have taken about a day to sail from place to place.
