Abstract
Two ring handles were found in Uppåkra by the archaeological excavations. The first one was found by metal detector survey near the church of Uppåkra and was assumed to have beonged to the medieval Church that in the 19:th cent. was replaced by the modern church. The other ring handle was found by in one of the foure large postholes in the cult house and was dated to 500-600 A.D. The ring handles comes from two shrines representing two religions. The christian ring handle has three knobs representing the Holy Trinity. The pre-Christian ring handle has four knobs. A guess is that they symbolize four gods - perhaps represented in the four big postholes of the cult house
