Abstract [en]

An archaeological excavation undertaken in the garden of Sigtuna museum in 2008 uncovered an early Christian grave monument made of sandstone. It consisted of an undecorated rectangular lid slab without inscriptions, and two triangular gable slabs. The grave monument was found in situ and has been dated to the phase preceding the stone church and thus most probably originates from the second half of the 11th century. The sandstone monument in Sigtuna has several characteristics in common with early Christian grave monuments, so called Eskilstuna cists. This article focuses on the Sigtuna monument and discusses its relation to other sepulchral monuments in Uppland and to early Christian grave monuments in the provinces south of Lake Mälaren.
