Viking Burials in Scotland

Viking Burials in Scotland: Landscape and Burials in the Viking Age

Please follow link to the project website. This website comprises a list of culturally Scandinavian Viking Age burial sites in modern-day Scotland. Most of the burials included grave-goods and are dated c. 850-950. Some information is provided regarding the burials and finds, but the emphasis is on the locations of the burials and how they relate to other features present in the Viking Age. Photographs of and from most burial sites are included. Satellite images from Google Maps are also included, along with GPS points and the National Grid Reference. It is hoped that this will assist people in locating these burials and facilitate site visits and foster an appreciation of the landscapes in which the Scandinavians chose to lay their dead.
