Abstract [en]

The perhaps most famous excavated iron age graves in Sweden are the East- and West Mounds of Old Uppsala (Gamla Uppsala) in Uppland, Middle Sweden. After a debate which lasted from the 1920s to the late 1940s it was widely accepted that these mounds belonged to the Migration period. According to the regular Swedish chronology this means a date before the middle of the 6th century. I believe that this view is wrong and that it has not seriously been challenged since 1948. To date the mounds to the late 6th and even the early 7th century has a serious effect upon how elite, society and international relations should be interpreted.
