Users by language

I, Gunnar Creutz also known as the user Achird, have mostly been active here at Wikimedia Commons and at Swedish Wikipedia. For many years I was working as an archaeologist and exhibition designer at Falbygdens museum in the province of Västergötland in Sweden. My main interests have been Archaeology, Norse paganism/Norse mythology, and Progressive rock. Mediaeval churches and my local area Västergötland have also been of interest. I have also liked to collect old maps and to draw maps. I have worked with the subcategories of Category:Archaeological monuments in Sweden, Category:Archaeological finds from Sweden, Category:Hundreds of Sweden, and Category:Civil parishes of Sweden. If you want to know more about me and my interests you can check my user page in Swedish. I have taken at least 120,000 photos since 1989, but just the latest twelve years with a digital camera. I wish I had more time to find the most valuable of them, scan them, retouch them, and upload them here. Most of the photos I have uploaded are retouched in ways of sharpening, contrast change, and colour adjustment.

For those of my pictures released with the CC BY-SA 3.0 licence or the CC BY-SA 4.0 licence I would be glad if my name is mentioned when the pictures are used. For use within the Wikimedia projects my username Achird or even just the link to the description page at Wikimedia Commons will do nicely. For use outside the Wikimedia projects I would prefer that "Gunnar Creutz, Wikimedia Commons" is mentioned as source along with the licence code CC BY-SA 3.0 or CC BY-SA 4.0.

The Name Achird[edit]

Star map showing Cassiopeia and Achird.

Achird is the name of the star system Eta Cassiopeiae. In 1984 I started to write a novel with heavy influences of fantasy and science fiction. This story took place on a fictive extrasolar planet orbiting the sunlike star Achird A. Later on I started to use the name Achird as an alias at Internet.
