History of Sweden - Early History
After the last Ice Age, when the ice cap melted and receded further up northwards;nomadic Stone Age hunter-gatherers (from Serbia, Germanic regions and other southern regions) ventured into what is now Sweden. They soon built settlements, growing crops, making crafts, hunting fish and farming animals during about 3000BC to 1800BC.
There are increasing sites being discovered of dwelling places and graves verified by archaeologists from during this period of time. Polished flint axes and decorated pottery are some well-known objects that were made and utilised in this period of time.
