Askahögen has been regarded as a grave mound, but is is obvious that it was the site of a high status manor in the late Iron Age. A Carolingian? imitation of an Islamic dinar struck in the 780s or 790s was found before 1686 in a mound near Vadstena. It is possible that this mound was Askahögen. Other finds in Sweden with Islamic dinars from the Viking Age are listed.
