  • TITLE: Astronomy and Sun Cult in the Swedish Bronze Age

    AUTHORS: Nils-Axel Mörner, Bob G. Lind

    KEYWORDS: Swedish Bronze Age, Bronze Import, Amber Export, Rock Carving, Sun Cult, Phalluscult, Ales Stones, The Golden Sky Dome

    ABSTRACT: The Scandinavian Bronze Age started quite rapidly at around 1750 BC, and is marked by three simultaneous events: 1) importation of bronze from the east Mediterranean region, 2) export of amber from southeast Sweden to the east Mediterranean region, and 3) the carving of pictures of big ships on bedrock and boulders in southern Scandinavia. We take this as evidence of travel and trading by people coming from the east Mediterranean region on big ships via Gibraltar and the North Sea to Scandinavia. At the same time, the Sun cult flourished in southern Sweden and Denmark, as evidenced by monuments perfectly oriented with respect to the Sun’s daily and annual motions over the sky (e.g. Ales Stones), rock carvings of solar symbols and in solar alignment, and a number of ritual objects related to the Sun Cult (e.g. The Golden Sky Dome). In this paper, we summarize and update available data, especially the data from Southern Sweden.
