The navvys relation to their surroundings in Norrbotten during the period 1886-1902 (English)
This study examines the navvys relation to their surroundings as it is described in newspaper articles, memoars, correspondence and the navvys own accounts, during the period 1886-1902. A qualitative metod is used to answer the questions of this thesis. Previous research indicates the the surroundings has a negative view of the navvy. This result is valid both nationally and internationally. The result of this study is more mixed. The surroundings has sympathies for the tough living conditions of the navvy but at the same time there are many people who have a negative view of the navvy. This is especially true for the police. The navvys demarcates deliberately from their surroundings and they contribute actively in order to create their own class.
