Today it is obvious that Uppåkra is a very special archaeological site. Graves from the Stone Age and Bronze Age indicate that the place was already of significance 4000 year ago. Yet it is Uppåkra’s Iron Age settlement that has received the most attention. The finds help us to understand the people who once lived here. In the earth innumerable remains still wait to be discovered – only a small portion of the the settlement area has so far been excavated. Yet with every new excavation, and with the help of the research carried out, we get an ever clearer picture of this unique place. The mission of The Foundation for Uppåkra Archaeological Centre includes the disseminating the archaeological knowledge derived here to the general public. The finds are on display at the Lund University Historical Museum, and 3-D copies of a selection of these finds are available at the Uppåkra site.
