The Uppåkra Temple
The Uppåkra Temple is an example of how archaeological
findings can result in an historical 3D-reconstruction.
Uppåkra was in the Viking Ages an important centre
located between the future cities of Malmö and Lund in the southern
part of Sweden. Uppåkra exists today as a smaller modern village.
Excavations made in the area revealed remnants
of an old building, most likely a temple. The remains consisted
of holes and trenches in which pillars and walls once stood.
