As archaeologists dug in preparation for a new railway line, they found traces of two rows of wooden pillars in Old Uppsala... One stretched about 1,000 yards and the other was half as long... were likely from the 5th century...

“If you like your pagan ceremonial site, you can keep your pagan ceremonial site.”
The Swedes worshipped fences. I knew it. I just knew it.
Good observation. They are too close together for a telephone line, so it must have been a holy fence.
I went out in the back yard and dug a hole by the fence. I put a naked Barbie doll, a nerf ball and three dog turds in it. Wait until some archeologist digs that up in two thousand years. That’s right. They’re going to be thinking that about us. I’m making history.
Naw....the Swedes were using mobile phones back then.
Spear and magic helmeeeet!
Exciting find: Archaeologist Fredrik Thölin sitting next to one of the foundations where the wooden poles were erected around every 20 feet
Toilet seat ring with a LEGO figure seated on a chair displayed in center, a ring of flat rocks, sand flooring, gravel walkway, buried under charcoal sh and peat.
It’s about time you buried that naked Barbie doll.
it`s a humongous giant linear sundial-
the smaller one is a moondial=
“We’ll have to import fill, this stuff has a crap R value...”
looking at the shape of the road, I wonder if these timbers were discovered forty years ago.
“Hey Ole - what’s up with all of these wood posts?”
“Off Da Sven. Looks like an ancient Viking site. Just shovel that back up and we’ll move the road over or it will NEVER get done.”
(And whatever was buried must have been something REALLY spectacular to warrant the big jog near the top of the photo.)
When I was a child — about 6, or 7 — I used to write fanciful notes and stick them behind the floor and casing moldings of my grandmother’s house, hoping that someday somebody would find them when they tore the house down and imagine some ridiculous story about who lived there.
The house (more than 125 years old) was sold out of the family about 10 years ago. I’ll have to check to see if it is still standing the next time I visit her town.
Heads on pikes?
My GI Joe is really mad.
I'm still waiting to hear from one of the bottles that I threw into the water in the middle of the Pacific Ocean in the mid-60's.
I don’t know that I would call these people “pre-Viking.” They were the same people, they just hadn’t started moving around in numbers.
