University of Kalmar, School of Human Sciences.ORCID iD: 0000-0003-4640-8784
2009 (English)In: Antiquity, ISSN 0003-598X, E-ISSN 1745-1744, Vol. 83, no 320, p. 359-371Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The famous monumental Bronze Age cairn Bredarör on Kivik with its decorated stone coffin or cist has been described as a ‘pyramid of the north’. Situating his work as the latest stage in a long history of interpretation that began in the eighteenth century, the author analyses the human bone that survived from the 1930s excavation and shows that the cist and chamber must have remained open to receive burials over a period of 600 years.
