Abstract [en]

 

With the rune-stone U 395 from Sigtuna and its inscription He brought her to Sigtunaas a starting point, the earliest Christian burials in Sigtuna and Lund are compared. Both towns probably functioned as an important necropolis for its hinterland in the early Christian period. People in Uppland who lacked the possibility to bring their dead to such a necropolis continued to bury at the traditional cemetery, but according to a new burial method and in a new type of grave. Examples of locations of graves in the early Christian period from various provinces known from runic inscriptions or from archaeological evidence are discussed. The conclusion is that the diversity and complexity are evident.
