Uppsala Sweden

Old Uppsala is known as a center for Norse religion, where believers gathered to sacrifice animals to gods such as Odin and Thor.

Archaeologists in Sweden said they have unearthed the remains of unusually large wooden monuments near a pre-Viking Age burial ground.

Archaeologist Lena Beronius-Jorpeland said the colonnades were likely from the 5th century but their purpose is unclear. She called it Sweden’s largest Iron Age construction and said the geometrical structure is unique.
