Fourteen thousand years ago, Sweden was still covered by a thick ice cap. Ale’s stones pictured here are from the Iron Age – before Vikings, war-hungry kings, peace and the race into modernity.From 8,000 BC to 6,000 BC, Sweden as a whole became populated by people who lived by hunting, gathering and fishing, and who used simple stone tools.Also the data of the designing artist will be an important indication of possible age.The Aluminia Faience factory date its history to the year 1862 founded by August Schittt (1834 - 1863).
The wooden building, originally discovered in 2012 by engineers building a highway, was later identified as a 10th-century Viking tomb known as a dødehus (death house).
After 500 BC, such artifacts become increasingly rare as iron came into more general use.
During the early Iron Age, the population of Sweden became settled, and agriculture came to form the basis of the economy and society.
The man in the main part of the building was buried along with a large battle axe.
As Kirsten Nelleman Nielsen, who led the excavation, explained to Science Nordic: “People across Europe feared this type of axe, which at the time was known as the Dane Axe–something like the ‘machine gun’ of the Viking Age.” For her part, the woman in the tomb was laid to rest in a wagon, known to be a typical practice for Viking women of noble birth.
