Famous yet forgotten, the monumental site of Haga just outside Uppsala is mainly associated with the Viking King Bjorn, though it is in fact the richest Bronze-Age grave in Sweden. The deceased was cremated and buried in an oak-log coffin, together with almost a third of all of Sweden's Bronze Age gold and gold fragments. This book presents 1200 years of interpretation and documentation of Haga, a site that will continue to fascinate and inspire archaeologists and the public at large for many years to come.
