This paper addresses a category of archaeological remains or monuments called “field labyrinths”. These monuments are often described as “mysterious” monuments since little is known about when or why they were created, and what their inherent meaning is or was. Although they seem to have been connected to ritual, cult and superstition, older Scandinavian written sources say nothing about their existence. I will try to shed light on some of these mysteries through a discussion of certain aspects of the labyrinths, focusing on the Swedish ones made of stone.
