When on Google Earth 40

After having won WOGE 39 with a lot of help from Andrea's clues (and Wikipedia's "List of ancient Egyptian sites" as well as the fact that it's a bank holiday here in Germany and I had nothing better to do) here is WOGE 40.

A: Simple, you try to identify the site in the

Q: Who wins?

A: The first person to correctly identify the site,

Q: What does the winner get?

A: The winner gets bragging rights and the chance to host
the next When on Google Earth on his/her own blog!

I don't know whether this will be easy or hard but it's a pretty well known site so I don't expect it to last too long.

Have fun and good luck!

You can see the modern farm better in this one which should allow you to determine the country we're in.

OK, clues:

We're in Northern Europe.
The site is a gravefield.
The site is very close to the centre of power of the svear kings.


This is the blog I use in order to be able to take part in "When on Google Earth", the archaeologist online game. It won't be used for anything else.
