Swedish Offerkast and Recent Roadside Memorials

Petersson, Anna LU (2009) In Folklore 120(1). p.75-91
Abstract
The erection of roadside memorials in Sweden is commonly considered a novel practice. However, it bears certain similarities with earlier traditions, especially, the so-called offerkast, a pile of sticks or stones thrown on the site of a death on the road.
