Abstract :
The article deals with the problem that although an Iron Age central place in Uppþkra is known through archaeology, it is never directly mentioned in written sources. By looking for any faint textual echos of a central place in southwestern Skþne it is, however, possible to trace a few written references to a central place in the 9th and 10th cs. According to these references the central place was connected to pagan cult practices and an annual market, and was surrounded by wooden defences. This central place can be regarded as the predecessor of the medieval town Lund, and the place may even have been called Lund. ;
