Abstract [sv]

In 1704 a Viking-Age hoard was found at Näs, Österåker par., Uppland, t.p.q. 1006. It contained an estimated 2,800 coins, mainly from Germany (c. 2,200?) and England (c. 500?), as well as the first known coins of Olof Skötkonung (c. 50). It is the largest Viking-Age hoard on the Swedish mainland within the contemporary borders. The site is located near to a Husaby and at the mouth of the Långhundra passage. It is suggested that the hoard can be connected with an administrative site where toll was collected. Goods transported along the Långhundra passage could have included iron for export.
