In the article, the author discusses possible trends in Medieval archaeology which may emerge in the next decade in Sweden. They include a demand for better publications regarding artefacts, research on relations of power at low levels in society, studies on ethnicily and local identity, everyday life within the frame of the large structures in society and a wider participation in historical education on all levels in the Swedish schools. Archaeology is seen as cultural history in a narrative tradition.

With the help of archaeological and written sources an interpretation is made which suggests illegal infanticide. (Less)
