Today my friends took me to the Uppsala Commune, north of Stockholm. We walked around Gamla Uppsala which has huge burial mounds of Viking kings and a small medieval church.
I was surprised at the massive size of the burial mounds dating from the 6th and/or 7th centuries.
A short walk from the mounds is the Old Uppsala Church. The small but beautiful structure is what remains of a large 12th- century church that burned in the early 13th century. Originally a Catholic church, it is now Lutheran.
Building adjacent to the church. Unknown purpose.
