Abstract [en]

This paper discusses the results of new analyses of bones and finds from the famous Bronze Age barrow at Håga near Uppsala. Despite its importance very few studies have been made on the material since the excavation and publication by Oscar Almgren in 1905. We now present new, surprisingly early radiocarbon dates for the human bones in the barrow fill, and we argue that they were included deliberately. An osteological analysis reveals that one individual aged 40–60 has been cremated, but the sex could not be determined. Isotope analyses show that the deceased had lived in the eastern part of the Lake Mälaren area, where the barrow is situated. The barrow itself however was strongly influenced by south Scandinavian tradition. Finally, some newly discovered decoration on a few objects in the grave is discussed.
