Lund is founded around 990 during the regim of Danish King Harald Bluetooth, when Scania was a part of Denmark. After 1000 Lund became a major Christian centre of the Baltic Sea region. In 1103 the diocese became the Catholic Metropolitan Archdiocese of Lund. Lund Cathedral was built in the years 1090–1145. The City became according to the Treaty of Roskilde conquered by by the Swedish Crown an in 1720 Lund became a part of Sweden.
The City of Lund, with it's nearly 90 000 inhabitants, has great traditions within education. Lund University, established 1666, is today one of Scandinatvia's largest institutions for education and research. The university led to Lund becoming a centre for high-tech industry in the south of Sweden. Numerous literary and intellectual figures have lived or studied in Lund, including the writer August Strindberg and the scientist and naturalist Carl Linnaeus
In 1830 the Academic Society was founded in Lund based on the Anglo-Saxon college system. They wanted to create a home for all students, but also a meeting place for university teachers and former students. Under the slogan coniuncta valent – the united is strong – has in Lund created a social and cultural center with no counterpart at any other Swedish university. AF Borgen, also called ynglingaborgen, is beyond Academic Society also home to several independent student associations.
AF building was completed in 1851 and replaced the AF’s first house Sylwanska gården (“Sylwan’s farm”). The architect, HJ Strömberg, was inspired by medieval castles and constructed a house specially adapted to the students’ needs.
The idea of the AF building was initially that all members could be in the house at the same time. As this was difficult even at the early 1900s the house was expanded to the North in 1911 by architect Frederick Sundbärg.
