What is Uppåkra?

...

Uppåkra – The Largest Iron Age Settlement in Northern Europe.

Deep down in the cultural layers of Skåne, lies Uppåkra – Northern Europe’s equivalence to ancient Pompeii. Here, people lived for over 1,100 years (between 100 BC-1000 AD).

Vast quantities of findings and artifacts have been unearthed at the site, of which 28,000 are metal objects. Advanced craftsmanship indicates strong trade relations with ancient Europe and the Middle East. With a massive size of 44 hectares (equivalent to 57 football fields), Uppåkra is today considered the largest Iron Age settlement in Northern Europe.
