Two grave mounds from the Bronze Age can be seen in Uppåkra. They stand along Gamla Trelleborgsvägen, a road that was probably also built in the Bronze Age. This means that when the town was built in the Iron Age, there were already a trading route and monuments there. Another two grave mounds have been removed during the Centuries. One was situated next to Store hög (shown in the picture), and the other by the cementary.
Remains after the Bronze Age people have also been found in Gullåkra, a great wetland east of Uppåkra. Weapons, jewellery and artworks have been found there. They were probably placed in the wetland as sacrifices to the gods. Some of the finds in Gullåkra dates to the Stone Age, some to the Bronze Age and others to the Iron Age. It means that this was an important place during all of prehistory; the people in Iron Age Uppåkra probably continued to perform rituals that their ancestors had done for thousands of years.
