To be buried inside a long-forgotten world: Studying the reuse of passage graves wearing "Bronze Age glasses"

Abstract [en]

The theories presented about the reuse of Neolithic monuments during the Bronze Age in Scandinavia are mainly universal, i.e. applicable to all periods during prehistory. I argue that there is no point in isolating reuse as something separate from society. The focus of my study is the Mysinge passage grave on the is- land of Öland. I have also studied the reuse of other graves on Öland and of passage graves in Falbygden. I propose that the passage grave was linked to the un- derworld and that some of those buried in the cham- ber of Mysinge during the Bronze Age were people travelling by sea.
