Abstract [en]

In this article I will give a brief review of my research concerning settlements andsettlement-patterns from the Bronze Age on Gotland, published in a licentiate thesis (Hallin 2002),were the main theme was to discuss the problems to find Bronze Age settlements on Gotland. Ihave continued excavations on the main site, Liffride in Alskog parish, and some preliminaryresults will also be presented. However, Bronze Age settlements are still my main focus, but thereare other aspects to reflect on from the period, such as why there are so few sites of rock carvingson the island compared to the “richness” of other remains? Considering the tradition during thelate Bronze Age of burying in house urns over a vast area of Europe, indications are that theearliest urns in northern Europe are to be found on Gotland. This could be of further interest whendiscussing the role Gotland held in the exchange system in the Baltic Sea during the Bronze Age.
