Abstract [en]

This paper contains analysis of Viking age female graves on the island Gotland in Sweden. The question asked is why some of these women carry penannular brooches, when these brooches were generally associated with males during the Viking age. The analysis shows that the majority of the women on Gotland wearing penannular brooches were found at the gravesite at Havor, Hablingbo. Depending on where the brooches were located in the grave; possible reconstructions of the individuals clothing were made. This shows that the women in Havor with penannular brooches had a different outfit than the general Viking woman of Gotland. When compared to women buried with penannular brooches in Birka, it shows that they do not use the brooches in the same way.
