The Bronze Age Barrow as a Symbol

Olausson, Deborah LU (1993) In Bronsålderns gravhögar 48. p.91-114
Abstract
The paper explores ideas as to what Bronze Age barrows could have symbolized in the society in which they functioned as living symbols. Four possible concepts are discussed: continuity, collective, context, and hierarchy. Source material is taken from five areas in Scania where there is adequate data from excavated barrows to test the ideas: southern Halland, the parish of Raus, the island of Ven, Abbekås and the area around the present city of Ystad.
