Kung Skute

Grave-field from the iron age


Kung Skutes hög is the largest of a total of six burial mounds. It is from the late Iron Age (500-1100 AD). In addition, there are also graves that consist of standing stones from the time around year 0 and several so-called hollow ways, i.e. traces of ancient roads or tracks. Something that they all have in common is that they are located at a ford on the Skuttungeån river, where it cuts through Uppsalaåsen ridge and thus on a natural trail. In the oral tradition, King Skute gave his name to the parish of Skuttunge.
