Abstract [en]

In 1949, it was decided to excavate the first of the four Migration Period large mounds in Högom at a cemetery a few kilometers west of Sundsvall in the county of Medelpad, North Sweden. Concentrations of large mounds (>20 m in diameter) in Scandinavia are known at Old Uppsala in Uppland, Bertnem in Trøndelag, and Borre and Snartemo. Often arranged in rows, these are high status burials representing generations of regional leadership. The four mounds in Högom ("mounds") Medelpad north Sweden clearly belonged to this exclusive group. When investigations began in 1949, the site had been largely forgotten and was encumbered by houses, barns and cellars, driveways and threshing places. The National Heritage Board decided to purchase the area, remove the buildings, and restore a cultural landscape around the cemetery. But before restoration, it was decided to investigate the most damaged of the burial mounds (No. 2). The project was one of exceptional innovation.
