Valsgärde burial field

Ship burial ground near the Fyris River

Situated on a moraine hill by the Fyrisån River, Valsgärde is home to a historic burial field. The hill is divided by a lengthwise hollow with traces of an ancient road. In the boat graves, which are from the Vendel and Viking periods (550-1050 AD), men of importance were buried in boats together with magnificent grave accouterments, such as weapons, horse trappings, glass goblets, household goods and sacrificial animals.
