In 1949, a woman's grave from the Roman Iron Age was found in Gårdlösa. It had a silver fibula on which there was a runic inscription. In 1963–1976, there were archaeological excavations of house foundations, grave fields and a shrine. The rich and varied material has enabled scholars to perform cross-domain studies of the inhabitants' social, economic and religious life, giving a good picture of an Iron Age agricultural settlement and its resources.
