This essay deals with the results and observations made during excavations in an iron age cemetery in Alsike hage, located in Alsike parish. The excavations took place in 2005 and 2006 and the investigated area comprised two adjacent, but secluded burial-constructions; a square stone setting with a secondary grave, and a stone-built terrace with at least one secondary grave. The artifacts suggests that the TPQ of the stone setting, and the construction date of the rest of the graves, is 900-950 A.D. The aim of this study was to comprehend the course of events in the investigated area, and to
analyse the archaeological finds - in comparison to the well documented an discussed material burial culture in the lake Mälar area – in order to discuss indicators of gender and social status.
Metal artefacts has been preserved as a part of the analysis.
