I know so little about the history of Estonia, I am going to use this first day's pictures to make a timeline of the events that are interesting to me, copying from Wikipedia..of course.

"The territory of Estonia has been inhabited since at least 9,000 B.C. Ancient Estonians were some of the last European pagans to be Christianized, following the Livonian Crusade in the 13th century."

800 the Estonians participate in the Battle of Brávellir on the side of the Swedes and against the Danes.

967 Estonian pirates capture the future King of Norway and sell him as a slave.
