Löddeköpinge

Previous page: Kaupang

Löddeköpinge is a small community beside the river Lödde å, only two kilometers away from the Sound. The place-name element “köpinge” indicates an Early Medieval market place and so, in the 1970’s excavations took place to see is the site could be located and good evidence was found.

Löddeköpinge probably flourished in the 9th century, but the prosperity of the market town decreased towards the end of the Viking Age, when interest shifted to Borgeby, a town farther away from the Sound, on the other side of the Lödde å River.
