Havdhem is a locality situated on the Swedish island of Gotland with 300 inhabitants in 2014.[1] Formerly a socken,[3] on 1 January 2016, it was reconstituted into the administrative area Havdhem District.[4]


Havdhem is the name of the socken, now district. It is also the name of the larger locality within the district and the small village surrounding the medieval Havdhem Church,[5] sometimes referred to as Havdhem kyrkby. It is situated in the central south part of Gotland.[6]


In 1961, Havdhem Municipality initiated a relief work project at Havor hillfort in Hablingbo that lead to the discovery of the Havor hoard.[7][8]
