Abstract [sv]

Sailing ships and far away myths. Connections between Eastern Mediterranean and South Scandinavia during the Late Bronze Age.

The aim of this article is to discuss certain symbols in the rock carvings and material culture of the Bronze Age in southern Scandinavia, symbols that can be related to the eastern Mediterranean cultures. The spread of certain symbols, ideas and conceptions are probably closely to related to to the introduction of bronze metallurgy, and the development of an increased social differentiation which favoured the growth of an aspiring elite north of the Alps. The connections and exchange systems that created opportunities for the inntroduction of bronze metallurgy also brought about new ideas concerning leadership and power. The adoption and integration of selected symbols and ideas from the Mediterranean was probably closely connected to prestige and status for certain groups within society.
