Abstract [en]

A background is given for six exclusive Migration Period finds from central Scania (Tormestorp, Sösdala, Göingeholm, Sjörup, Fulltofta and Claestorp). The area is delimited by uninhabitable horsts and situated in the northern more forested part of Scania. There is long settlement continuity but the archaeological record is relatively poor in comparison to the plains in southern and north-eastern Scania. The six finds mark something new in the area, a presence of warriors connected to the south-east European martial elite. The area is placed at the interface between two major polities in the south-west and north-east. Various reasons why elite warriors were placed here are discussed.
