Abstract [en]

A combined geophysical prospection with slingram, gradiometer and ground-penetrating radar is described. The prospection is carried out at the Eastern Mound and the Thing Mound, Gamla Uppsala, Middle Sweden in an attempt to detect the internal structure of the mounds. At the Eastern Mound we were able to identify the fossil ground surface, a centre cairn, a possible older grave under the mound and a few other anomalies, some of them most possibly depending on historical activities and some more likely on prehistoric, human activities. The Thing Mound was found being of geological origin and only prepared to become a grave. The project shows that a combined use of several geophysical methods improves and simplifies the interpretation.
