In this paper a biographical approach to the history of Neolithic passage graves is suggested. Focus is on the passage grave at Mysinge, SE Sweden that was excavated in the early 20th century and has been subject to a range of analyses since. Various investigations of the tomb, following the excavation in 1908 and continuing to this day, are reviewed and the results from the different analyses are brought together in a discussion of the long-term use of the site as a burial monument.
