Jennbert, Kristina LU (2007) In On the Road. Studies in Honour of Lars Larsson. eds. B.Hårdh, K. Jennbert and D. Olausson
Abstract
Bird brooches at Uppåkra have a changing biography, as grave gifts, pendants, and scrap metal. The association between bird brooches and birds of prey, and a male face to female jewellery opens questions of identy of the wearer and the male person in question. Following the bird brooches and the connotations of falconry decode both a social identiy and a lifestyle, expressed in the aestetics of the time. Obviously, the bird brooches signal a message within the social elite, between men and women, and in a continantal networking, and contemporary travelling, in eastern and westens direction.
