Gamla Uppsala Picture

Gamla Uppsala (near Uppsala, Sweden)

A place of great historical, mythological and archaelogical interest and relevance.
Gamla Uppsala was the central heathen cultic centre of Sweden, a place where many þings and blóts were held.

What remains are a number of gravemounds and a church that was most likely built on top of the heathen temple that once stood there.
