Thank you for attending the conference, for presenting excellent papers and for asking stimulating questions and sharing a wealth of specialist knowledge, all of which led to a successful, and memorable, conference. I am especially grateful to the session organisers for leading interesting sessions with lively discussions. I am also grateful to Johan Ling for organising the excursion to Tanum on the last day, and to Anna Wessman for leading the excursion to the so-called Bronze Age Strait. In addition, heartfelt thanks must also go to GAST, the student society, and to the student helpers who volunteered during the symposium.A further round of thanks must go to the contributors to this volume, both for taking the time to write and revise the articles, and for having patience with the numerous small questions that always arise in finalising an edited volume. I would also like to thank my co-editor, Anna Wessman, who assisted until the start of her maternity leave in April 2016. Thanks are also due to Kristin Bornholdt Collins for assisting with matters of language and in the task of adopting the style guidelines of the publisher, and to Rich Potter for setting the volume. I am also grateful to Archaeopress for showing interest when I approached them about publishing the volume.For generously sponsoring both the conference and this volume, I am profoundly grateful to  Lennart J Hägglunds Stiftelse för arkeologisk forskning och utbilding  .Finally, I wish to thank my colleagues at the Department of Historical Studies at the University of Gothenburg for their support, from conference planning to production of this volume. Particular thanks go to Johan Ling, Peter Skoglund and Kristian Kristiansen for their input along the way. I hope that the authors are pleased with the final result, and that many will find the diverse collection of articles an interesting and inspiring read.Gothenburg, March 2017Sophie Bergerbrant Preface Copyrighted material - no unorthorized reproduction in any medium.  Copyrighted material - no unorthorized reproduction in any medium.  iii Table of Contents Introduction ......................................................................................................................................................... 1 New perspectives on Nordic Bronze Age graves .................................................................................................... 5Kristian Kristiansen Mjeltehaugen: Europe’s northernmost Bell Beaker expression? ........................................................................... 7Anette Sand-Eriksen Bronze Age burials in megalithic graves in Falbygden .......................................................................................... 19Malou Blank Identifying commoners in the Early Bronze Age: burials outside barrows............................................................ 37Sophie Bergerbrant, Kristian Kristiansen, Morten E.
