    A final reply to Carrie Roy2012In: Fornvännen, ISSN 0015-7813, E-ISSN 1404-9430, Vol. 107, no 2012:3, p. 217-219Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    At the 14th Saga Conference, Carrie Roy presented a paper on the meaning of the gripping- beast motif in Viking Period culture. Roy leveled serious criticism against her peers, including the co-authors of this note, declaring them victims of their own subjectivity. In Fornvännen 2012:1, we responded to criticism that Carrie Roy had directed towards us in print. The matter appeared especially urgent as her account contained errors of fact and misquotations that did injury to fellow researchers. Thus, the main focus of our reply was on academic craftsmanship. Reading Roy's reply in Fornvännen 2012:2, we noted with regret that she remains set in her ways, rather than admitting human error. Therefore, we felt compelled to compose a final reply.

    Sword parts and their depositional contexts - Symbols in Migration and Merovingian Period martial society2013In: Fornvännen, ISSN 0015-7813, E-ISSN 1404-9430, Vol. 108, no 2, p. 109-122Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A key feature of swords from the Migration and Merovingian Periods is that they consist of many different parts, as recently highlighted by the discovery of the Staffordshire hoard. This paper seeks to understand sword parts and their depositional contexts by interpreting them as symbols of kleptocracy, animated by their object biographies in a martial society. This is done by evaluating four important finds from Sweden: a stray intact sword from Scania, a cremation grave from Heberg in Halland, a wetland deposit from Snosback in Vastergotland, and the settlement finds from Uppakra in Scania. The presence of the various different parts varies substantially in the different kinds of contexts. In particular, the Uppakra settlement is missing hundreds of sword parts that ought to have been there given the professional excavations and systematic metal-detecting over many years there. This allows for the interpretation of the Uppakra sword parts as the remains of a battlefield of about AD 600 where most of the sword parts were removed from the site shortly after the battle.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims mainly to analyse the relationship between university scholars and heritage conservation by means of two examples: Iron Age house types, which is history, and the analysis of planned Iron Age architecture, which has not yet benefited sufficiently from contract archaeology. I recognise the duty of university scholars to develop research topics that may be useful to contract archaeology as well 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 be related to a shift in Iron Age building principles: in the Early Iron Age form follows function, but in the Late Iron Age construction principles give form.

    Selaöns runinskrifter: en runstensgeografi2017In: Fornvännen, ISSN 0015-7813, E-ISSN 1404-9430, Vol. 112, no 1, p. 10-23Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This is a study of a small runestone material from the Selaön Island in Lake Mälaren. As an island material, the inscriptions are set apart from their surroundings. They link in with common traits among decorated 11th runestones, but also with the characteristic breadth of middle-sized and well-defined materials. This local diversity may nevertheless be seen as a characteristic in itself of the larger Lake Mälaren area: this region is partly built from local nodes united by the lake. Based on the study three research fields are identified: 1) small-scale runestone geography and chronology, 2) the non-banal and complex relationship between design, text and ornament, 3) a dimension of intent characteristic of Selaön, that is, a local sincerity in the commemorative inscriptions. Micro-geography, complex design and mindset are thus suggested as new fields for a cognitively more rewarding contextual research into the runestone vogue in the Lake Mälaren area.

    Uppslagsrikt beslag från helig plats: Om djurornamentiken från Lilla Ullevi i Bro2010In: Fornvännen, ISSN 0015-7813, E-ISSN 1404-9430, no 105, p. 1-8Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The clasp found at Lilla Ullevi in Bro parish near Stockholm is puzzling in many respects. The composition of its animal art unites a number of puzzle pictures alluding to different Vendel style phases. Despite repair, there are no traces of wear typical for dress or belt clasps. Does the clasp predate the abandonment of Ullr’s sanctuary or vice versa? In 2007 a gilded copper-alloy clasp was found in a stratum covering a late-1st Millennium cult site at Lilla Ullevi in Bro parish near Stockholm. The clasp’s animal art (with affinities to the Vendel styles B, D and E) unites five different motifs (some of them doubled) that are masterfully interlaced into puzzle pictures. The find context, unfortunately, does not al - low us to state whether the clasp was lost before, during or after the closing-down of the sanctua - ry. Its stylistic date points to a date after c. AD 725, and it may even be an archaising piece dating from the Viking Period. Despite a rivet that may be evidence of repair, the mount shows none of the typical corrosion or wear traces of a dress. It rather associates with a hard underlay, ante- dating the book clasps of later centuries.

    Abstract [en]

    Following the suggestions of Sophus Müller in his essay "Dyreornamentiken i Norden" (1880), scholars in Late Iron Age artefact studies long avoided interpretations of Germanic animal art which differed from the traditional idea of a meaningless ornament. Accordingly, research in Germanic animal art has been dominated by an interest in the establishment of stylistic groups, as indicators of chronological and regional variations. In recent years, however, a paradigm shift has come to pass, influenced by new theoretical schools and motivated by the results of iconographers led by Karl Hauck. This paper presents new iconographic methodology, explores the fate of two animal types through the successive animal art styles of the Vendel Period, and suggests an iconological interpretation connected to the cult of Odin.

    Abstract [en]

    Saint Erik was King of Sweden for a few years up to 1160, when he was killed. A skeleton attributed to him is kept in Uppsala Cathedral. It underwent scientific reappraisal in 2014. The analyses included computer tomography, Xray absorptiometry, isotope analysis and DNA sampling. Radiocarbon confirms the alleged age of the bones. They belong to a 35-40-year-old man in excellent physical shape. The many wounds that he received in connection with his death fit surprisingly well with the saint's legend, whose preserved version was written 130 years after the event.

The resulta show tha) a great number ol animals were sacrificed on lhe funeral pyres in honour of the dead. The animals include trained falcons and bawks. They reveal that falconry already in the 6th century was pracliced by the wealthy class.

    Abstract [en]

    Boat axes are one of the main object categories defining the Battle Axe Culture in Sweden (2800–2100 cal BC). Scholars interpret the axes as purely symbolical objects. During the later part of the period, miniatures occur. Their role has been much discussed. The axes have been interpreted as associated with children's graves or related to deposition sites in the landscape and ascribed symbolism. Yet, little research has been devoted to understanding the first appearance of the miniature boat axes and relating them to other changes in the material culture towards the end of theMiddle Neolithic B.

    This study aims to reviewprevious research into the miniature boat axes and to discuss their role inMiddleNeolithic society. The discussion includes a survey of the axes and an analysis of their physical qualities in order to give the group a stringent and practical definition.

    The results suggest that boat axes of miniature size should be seen as a distinct part of Middle Neolithic B material culture. They differ from the full-sized axes in terms of shape, frequency and function.

    In a meadow 17 kmSouth of Visby (Gotland) are two of the largest ship settings on the island located. The Gotlandic stone ship settings are traditionally placed in the Nordic Late Bronze Age (1100-500 BC). Close by the largest stoneship in Ansarve, which measures 45 meters in length, is also the onlymegalithic grave known on Gotland located. A construction dated to the Mid-Neolithic (3500-2900 BC) and erected over a thousand year before the stone ships. It has been several archaeological excavations in the meadow, but all of them have concentrated on their specific prehistoric period and construction, either the megalithic tomb or the ship settings. Even when findings and the absolute dating from 1984´s excavation ofthe megalithic tomb gave indications of Bronze Age use or re-use were the ship settings close by discussed or considered in the final report and later publications.

    The meadow at Ansarve holds two of the most prominent prehistoric monuments on Gotland, but they have never been discussed in the same context. The modern road cutting the meadow today also divides the megalithic tomb from the largest ship setting in time and space. A visual imaginary boarder this specific paper tries to bridge. The the oretical framework used is developed from the works of Maurice Halbwachs, Paul Ricoeur, Pierre Nora and Paul Connerton considering collective memory, memory and place, memory and history.
