Abstract
The aim of this essay is to treat regional identities in Scania during the late Iron Age. I will present means and ways used by archaeologists in order to map regional identity through archaeological material. I will then present the material in Scania. How has the Scanian material been interpreted by previous scientists, and can regional identities be discerned in late Iron Age Scania? To answer these questions, I will study what has been written in the matter: how identity can be discerned through archaeology, and if the Scanian material hint at the prescence of regional identities. I will also have to clarify the term regional identity, and its relationship to archaeology.

I will also have to clarify the term regional identity, and its relationship to archaeology.
The main part of the Scanian material relevant for this essay is associated with graves and grave goods. Other categories that I will use concerns the living society of the Iron Age, such as economy, politics and cult. Written sources will also be evaluated.
This material is not exhaustive, and leaves plenty of room for different viewpoints. My intention is to present the available archaeological material along with the interpretations of previous researchers in order to present an overview of Scania during the late Iron Age, and the possible regional identities that existed at that time.
