Sagaholm is a group of Bronze Age burial mounds located in the municipality of Österåker, in the Uppland region of Sweden. The site is believed to date back to the Nordic Bronze Age, which lasted from about 1700 BCE to 500 BCE.

The Sagaholm burial mounds consist of several round barrows, or burial mounds, that were constructed by Bronze Age people as a way to bury their dead. The mounds are made up of earth and stones, and are usually circular or oval in shape, with a diameter ranging from 10 to 50 meters.

Archaeological excavations of the Sagaholm burial mounds have uncovered a range of artifacts, including pottery, bronze jewelry, and tools. The most notable discovery was a bronze sword found in one of the mounds, which is believed to have been made around 1100 BCE.

The Sagaholm burial mounds are an important archaeological site in Sweden, as they offer insight into the lives and burial practices of Bronze Age people. The site is open to the public and can be visited as part of a guided tour or on one’s own.
