ARV means heritage. ARV , Nordic Yearbook of Folklore, presents our mental heritage, folklore, as the foundation of our culture, our patterns of interaction and our world view. Folklore, i.e. popular poetry, belief and custom, is an important identity factor for every nation in historical as well as recent times.

ARV was founded in 1945 as a common Nordic journal and it is still published by the Royal Gustavus Adolphus Academy in Uppsala , Sweden .
