Uppåkra in its historical setting
Uppåkra was founded during the 1st century BC and was abandoned more than a thousand years later. This means that those who lived in Uppåkra were affected in a number of ways by the great events that created modern Europe. The Roman Empire reached its heyday and its decline. Religions such as Christianity and Islam arose and nations like France and England began to take shape. Meanwhile the Vikings embarked on their long journeys.
The maps show how the most powerful kingdoms and empires on the continent changed during the long period in which Uppåkra existed.
