Birkaborna med föremål från finska fastlandet, vilka var de?

Gustin, Ingrid LU (2012) In Birka nu. Pågående forskning om världsarvet Birka och Hovgården. p.95-110
Abstract
This article focuses on objects from mainland Finland retrieved in the graves of the Viking Age town Birka in the Mälalen valley, Sweden. The main questions posed in the article are what people were buried with these items and what can be concluded about their cultural identity. In the article the artefacts from mainland Finland are presented as well as their contexts. An examination of the find assemblages shows that the material culture in the graves had a heterogeneous origin. The graves in Birka with objects from the Finnish mainland can thus be said to display cultural hybridity.
