Annually laminated (varved) sediments from the River Angermanalven, mid-central Sweden, have been used to construct an annual 2000-year long record of varve thickness. Maximum daily annual discharge and mean varve thickness for the years 1909-1971 are significantly correlated (r = 0.87). A relationship between maximum daily annual discharge for the observed period (1909-1971) and varve thickness was determined. The return time of two exceptionally thick varves in the 2000-year long record at the years 658 and 492 AD were estimated and their likelihood estimated based on a Gumbel frequency analysis.
