    A Central Scandinavian hall at a magnate farm near Uppåkra2019In: Fornvännen, ISSN 0015-7813, E-ISSN 1404-9430, Vol. 114, no 3, p. 142-154Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to discuss a hall building of Central Scandinavian type at a magnate farm at Hjärup, close to the central place of Uppåkra. The few other buildings of this type in Scania are presented as well. The background for the presence of these houses in Scania and the house at Hjärup in particular is discussed. It is suggested that the Central Scandinavian houses in Scania are too few to presume a major immigration of people from central Scandinavian areas. Instead, they indicate a small influx of individuals, friends and allies to the Uppåkra leaders and probably men from that area who had been members of the Uppåkra leaders’ retinue. This article indicates that houses, like other material cultural artefacts such as jewellery, can be used as signs of contacts between different areas.

    Abstract [en]

    There is a legend about Lake Finsberg. In the older days. The legend says, at the time when there was much reindeer on the north of Hardangervidda, then there was an extensive hunting of reindeer at the lake. In the middle of the south shore is a level and low spit of land that draws together the lake to a narrow sound. It is said that it was here in the sound that the hunting was carried out. Animals on move on the north side were driven in to the water, stabbed and beaten to death while they were swimming and then dragged ashore on the spit of land and slaughtered. Sumtangen is the name of the place. The hunters used long rows of cairn sandwooden sticks with ropes between says one of the legend variants.The rows stretched several kilometers out in the terrain in the form of a funnel that was wide farthest out, but got narrow towards the sound. When the animals entered the funnel they were lead straight into the water. In it were stretched outlines that prevented the animals from swimming to the sides. At the spit of land on the southside [of the sound] the hunter slay ready in boats waiting.

    Den förkomna kyrkklockan i Grava i Värmland bar en inskrift som länge varit ett mindre mysterium. Detta har berott på otydliga bokstavsformer och spegelvänd skrift, men visar sig också bero på att inskriften var en ovanlig magisk formel bestående till största delen av änglanamn, varav ett par är märkliga.

    Nya aspekter på Fornsigtunas medeltid2019In: Fornvännen, ISSN 0015-7813, E-ISSN 1404-9430, Vol. 114, no 3, p. 155-168Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Fornsigtuna’s Iron Age royal manor house and other buildings on the site were torn down shortly before AD 1000, and the place-name Sigtuna was transferred to the newly-established Christian town. From then on, the Fornsigtuna estate was cultivated by a royal bailiff and tenant farmers, occupying a new site with a cross-marked runic stone on display. Ruins of a medieval manor at Fornsigtuna are men-tioned by a few 17th-century writers. Up to now the search for this building has been inconclusive but its existence should not be ruled out until further investigations have been conducted.

    Kungsbetet: en medeltida fägata av stora mått2019In: Fornvännen, ISSN 0015-7813, E-ISSN 1404-9430, Vol. 114, no 4, p. 229-241Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    From the city of Lund in the Swedish province of Scania via the Höjebro bridge to the village Genarp at the foot of the Romeleåsen ridge, an old route called Kungsbetet "The royal pasture" can be traced on land survey maps from the 18th century. The route was over 20 kilometres long and consisted of a usually 50 metre wide ground strip owned by the king and the crown. When it is first mentioned in the early 17th century it was already in dissolution. According to different sources it is obvious that Kungsbetet was an unusually long and broad cattle path. It has hitherto not been possible to find any real counterparts. In this article the dating, function and origin of Kungsbetet are discussed. It is argued that it is from the Middle Ages and was established due to lack of pastures in Lund and in the surrounding countryside. However, vast pastures were available on the Romele åsen ridge. This old common (Sw. allmänning) was under royal control from the early Middle Ages.

    The spur goad from Skegrie in Scania, Sweden: evidence of elite interaction between Viking Age Scandinavians and Western Slavs2019In: Fornvännen, ISSN 0015-7813, E-ISSN 1404-9430, Vol. 114, no 2, p. 57-74Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present paper focuses on a small metal artefact discovered in 2008 during archaeological excavations that preceded the construction of the E6 road leading from Trelleborg to Vellinge in Scania, Sweden. The object under consideration is a copper-alloy goad which originally formed part of a very particular type of Viking Age spurs known from the West Slavic area, predominantly from modern-day Poland.

    Abstract [en]

    Rock art research in Northern Europe has found few opportunities to highlight the creation and use of rock art through informed methods. Most rock art traditions seem to have ended thousands of years before any historical sources inform us about people’s life-worlds. The exception to this is ample post-Reformation sources that connect cup marks with elves: light fairy creatures who were easily disturbed and could cause sickness and ill fortune if they became annoyed. This paper highlights this body of belief through historical and oral sources and through archaeological evidence. I argue that Early Modern elf folklore may very well be based in older traditions which found new expressions through the Reformation and the Danish and Swedish state religion – Protestantism.

    Abstract [en]

    The Fröjel fragment represents a high level ofcraftsmanship. Due to its damaged state and as itwas found singly in mixed deposits, it is hard todetermine its original use and depositional context.It is possible that the quatrefoil was originallypart of the inventory of a destroyed grave inor close to the local cemetery, but it may also havebeen deliberately deposited or brought in as rawmaterial intended for reuse in the workshops ofthe later harbour settlement. Technical analysiswill most probably reveal more information, butmeanwhile the presence of the fragment itselfserves both to elaborate our understanding of thesite and to underline its importance.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims mainly to analyse the relationship between university scholars andheritage conservation by means of two examples: Iron Age house types, which ishistory, and the analysis of planned Iron Age architecture, which has not yet benefitedsufficiently from contract archaeology. I recognise the duty of universityscholars to develop research topics that may be useful to contract archaeology aswell as to heritage conservation and university archaeology. As a topic of research,I suggest a cognitively based understanding of Iron Age house planning and construction.I suggest that an important understanding of cognitive history can berelated to a shift in Iron Age building principles: in the Early Iron Age form followsfunction, but in the Late Iron Age construction principles give form.

    A new documentation of "Runohällen" (Gerum, Tanum)2019In: Fornvännen, ISSN 0015-7813, E-ISSN 1404-9430, Vol. 114, no 3, p. 114-141Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents the results of a recent documentation of the rock art panel called “Runohällen” in Gerum, Bohuslän (RAÄ Tanum 311:1). The documentation was conducted using photogrammetry and analysed using a new documentation method. It was possible to identify several new motifs, updating the record from previous documentations. During this work a petroglyph previously identified as an axe stood out through an elongated and as of yet unexplained feature. It is argued that this motif is indeed an axe, but converse to the older interpretation, it is suggested that the motif is turned “upside-down” when compared to the major-ity of petroglyphs on the panel. Several interpretations are considered, but it is thought most likely that the carving had an antagonistic purpose.

    Small pieces of flint: mesolithic contact patterns on the Småland highlands in south Sweden2019In: Fornvännen, ISSN 0015-7813, E-ISSN 1404-9430, Vol. 114, no 4, p. 201-219Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This text discusses a small assemblage of flint from an excavation of a Mesolithic site in the Småland highlands dated to c. 9.200 cal BP. Flint does not occur naturally in the area and the flint assemblage was brought to the site from the coast, about 45 kilometres to the west. The ambition of the study was to analyse a Mesolithic site with few and fragmented artefacts . By means of analyses of distribution patterns and detailed analyses of reduction processes and use-wear analysis it could be established that a variety of tasks had been performed at the site. The distribution of burnt flint together with there mains of a hut demonstrate that the site was spatially organized. Even though the number of flint pieces from the site is small, there are no indications that the find material is the result of short visits on the site. Instead, it is more likely a place that was used for stays of some duration. The use of non-local raw material indicates mobility and contact patterns that links present day west coast of Halland and south-east Scandinavia (Skåne and the Danish islands), with the Småland highland and the Markaryd area at the time of the settlement. The technological analys is indicates that stays in the inland lasted long enough to force the group to use and curate the flint tools in a careful way to make them last. But the visits were not so long that locally available raw materials, as for example quartz, had to be used. A general conclusion to be drawn from the result is that the number of lithic pieces in an assemblage, is not in proportion to the interpretative potential of a site.

    Abstract [en]

    This article concerns ring brooches from Lund, discussing similarities and differences in the material with respect to ring brooches from Gotland, Denmark and Norway. Ring brooches are commonly used in almost all parts of Northern Europe during both the Viking Age and the Middle Ages. The entire material of ring brooches from Lund has not been analysed before and is therefore a missing piece in the research field. This article is also a contrast to other similar studies of ring brooches. The material indicates regional differences between places in Scandi-navia and Northern Europe and implies a shift from Viking Age traditions to a new medieval society. In this article, the focus is on changes over time, both in design and in meaning, and regional differences between places in Scandinavia, something that should be taken into consideration to a higher degree when studying urban medieval material.

    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the embroidered skull reliquary on foot, kept in the Linköping Castle and Cathedral Museum (SHM 3920:6). The reliquary was examined by Agnes Branting and Andreas Lindblom in 1928 and discussed in this journal by Axel Romdahl in 1929. Inger Estham describes the object in the 2001 publication on Linköping Cathedral and suggests that it was a gift from Vadstena Abbey to the cathedral for the translation of Bishop Nils Hermansson's relics in 1515. Our analysis of the textiles, the embroidery, the traces of lost ornaments and the iconography has led us to believe that the assumed provenance from the hands of the nuns of Vadstena Abbey is correct. However, the decoration on top of the lid, forming a typical Birgittine crown, would not be correct for a bishop: it wouldinstead be most appropriate for a Birgittine nun. Furthermore, the decoration and the execution of the embroidery correspond to textile production in Vadstena Abbey in the mid-15th century, not the early 16th. Finally, a description of the skull reliquary used at the translation of St. Catherine of Vadstena in 1489 fits rather well with what the Linköping reliquary is likely to have looked like originally. We therefore dismiss the reliquary's association with the translation of Bishop Nils Hermansson in 1515 and instead suggest a date no later than 1489.

    Abstract [en]

    In the current exhibition on Swedish prehistory at the Swedish History Museum, visitors can observe an extraordinarily emotive Stone Age grave containing the skeletons of a man and a small child. However, the grave was interpreted by the excavators as containing three skeletons. The third skeleton has for some reason been omitted from the exhibition altogether. At the time of the excavation the omitted skeleton was found without the cranium and was placed slightly below the bent legs of the other two skeletons. I argue that the three skeletons, although perhaps representing two burial episodes, should be regarded as relating to one another in a grave assemblage. Instead of presenting the cropped grave assemblage in order to discuss family norms in the past, as is the case in the current exhibition at the museum, we might instead exhibit the assemblage in its entirety as a means to discuss temporal and cultural variations in the attitudes towards "proper" graves, the body and the sacred.

    Abstract [en]

    A copper alloy seal matrix, which might have belonged to the ecclesiastic Petrus Philippi (d. 1341), has been found on the island of Biskops-Arnö in eastern central Sweden. Petrus Philippi was a Dominican, archbishop of Uppsala 1332–1341, and Arnö was the residence for him and his peers; a minor palace was built by his predecessor and completed by Petrus Philippi. Medieval ecclesiastical seal matrices areunusual finds, and a deliberately destroyed one like this one is even more rare. In this paper the seal matrix is presented and discussed.The authors present a hypothesis about the nature and date of the matrix and how and when it ended up in this particular spot. The matrix would not have been found if not forthe use of systematic metal detecting, the benefits of which are emphasized in this paper.

    The thousands of iron production sites scattered across the mountain and valley regions of Norway are testament to a massive surplus production from the latter half of the Viking Age throughout the High Middle Ages. Archaeological and historical sources indicate that this production was carried out by singular farms. Still, the amount of iron produced surpassed both local and regional demands and constituted a regional and interregional commodity in the period 950–1300 AD.

    Abstract [en]

    The excavations of the mass graves from the Battle of Visby 1361, revealed besides alarge amount of human remains also a large amount of armour pieces. The numberof preserved armour pieces from the 14th Century are limited, making the findsunique. Since the number of preserved gauntlets are even fewer and because the historyof why the finds ended up in the mass grave is unclear, gauntlet 17 from themass graves became the focus of this study; with the creation of a constructiondrawing of the gauntlet as the end goal. X-rays of the corroded fragments were successfullyused to reconstruct the design of the individual parts of the gauntlet. Thedesign of gauntlet 17 largely resembles the other gauntlets from the Battle of Visbyfindings, but differs in several key details from the other gauntlets. There is a variationbetween all the gauntlets regarding the disposition and design of plates. It alsobecame evident that gauntlet 17 was broken. This is interesting in regard to the subjectof why the armour pieces were deposited in the mass graves.

    Abstract [en]

    Among professor Sven Nilsson's (1787–1883) papers is a small envelope with littlephotographs of crania from Gibraltar. Among them are two images of a Neanderthal skull from Forbes Quarry. Nilsson got the envelope from the English naturalist George Busk (1807–86) at the congress for prehistoric archaeology in Norwichand London in 1868. The 1860s was a period of upheaval. The discovery of the Palaeolithic Stone Age and Darwin's evolutionary theory had changed views of the past and humankind's role in nature. The Neanderthal finds complicated matters further. Nilsson had studied the Forbes Quarry skull already at the meeting of the British Association in Bath in 1864. Under applause, he was asked to solve the riddleof the Neanderthals. Nilsson declined the request and thus lost the opportunityto become one of the first Neanderthal experts.

    Abstract [en]

    In the 19th and early 20th centuries there were numerous non-proprietors paupers in the Swedish countryside such as crofters, boarders and inhabitants of rural slums. With a change in the heritage legislation, increased possibilities to archaeologically investigate the non-proprietors of the recent past have emerged, but the archaeological material is still both scarce and of a repetitive character. Thus, multisource methods such as triangulation of written documents, historical maps and archaeological evidence is used to study living conditions in a number of cases. We argue for the importance of archaeology in this context, as there often are arguments against the usefulness of archaeology in a period rich in written sources. We emphasize that archaeology helps provide a more complex picture of the vulnerability and marginalization of poor and paupers. Marginalization could offer new possibilities to the poor and pauper, but also weaker security nets and increased vulnerability. The potential of archaeological studies of landless subalterns can show the multivocality of the lives of the subalterns, in the same way as it shows how the subalterns organized their daily life. We can conclude that much needs to be done on the topic of subalterns, in order to make them more visible and a main-stream topic of historical research. Archeology has a great deal to contribute in this process.

    Abstract [sv]

    Byn Hackås i Jämtland ligger vackert vid Storsjöns södra strand. Talrika gravhögar vittnar om att trakten varit bebyggd sedan järnåldern. Under 1100-talet ersattes byns träkyrka av en större stenkyrka med halvrund korabsid. Det är landskapets enda bevarade absidkyrka, och den nordligaste i Skandinavien.

    Albertus Pictor: a Medieval master painter and his pigments2018In: Fornvännen, ISSN 0015-7813, E-ISSN 1404-9430, Vol. 113, no 2, p. 89-102Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The German-born artist Albertus Pictor (†1509) was responsible for the decoration of the walls and vaults of about 35 Swedish churches. In terms of the brilliant technique and the overwhelming production volume, his workshop was outstanding in Medieval Sweden. This study analyses a total of 291 samples of pigmentsfrom nine churches containing murals attributed to the workshop. Some of the results have already been published, but here they are integrated with new data.Isotope measurements of 13 lead pigments have been made. A tenth church with aquestionable attribution, Öja on Gotland, has also been investigated with nine samples. One purpose of this study is to find out which pigments Albertus' workshop preferred. Another aim is to show how chemical data can complement art historians' judgments concerning the master of a mural. Furthermore, the origins of the pigments are discussed. Our results indicate that Albertus Pictor used a rather limited number of pigments, and that he preferred pigments from his native country, Germany.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses processes that drove the ability of pre-Christian religion in Scandinavia to vary and adapt to shifting conditions and contexts in society. They also helped to keep religion cohesive over both social and geographical boundariesand hierarchies. Based on a substantially reduced and contextually modified variant of McKim Marriott’s description of the changeability of religious traditions asa constantly on-going circular flow, I tentatively exemplify the dynamism of religionin the Late Iron Age through three case studies.The first of these concerns the relationship between local, regional and supraregionaldeities; the second addresses the axis mundi complex and the relationship between private and public worship; and the third examines the exchange of mortuarypractices and eschatological religious traditions across social boundaries. Allthese cases also illustrate the ability of religious elements to spread geographically,and in doing so adapt to varying sociocultural contexts. Such processes took placein all contexts where people interacted. The sociocultural foundations of religioncan in this sense be compared to a multitude of overlapping, interacting, changeable networks of social and cultural relationships.The characteristics that kept religion dynamic and alive were flexibility and anability to adapt to this sociocultural patchwork. Religion was part of culture, andjust like culture, it was shaped by the constant circular flow of tradition.
