Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ockelbo is a locality and the seat of Ockelbo Municipality, G vleborg County, Sweden with 2,709 inhabitants in 2005. The name Ockelbo, spelt De oklabo in 1314, contains an old marine name *Ukle, referring to modern- day lake Bysj n. The name derives from the old Swedish word ukla meaning swell, gain etc. alluding to the rapid changes in the water level of the lake. The latter part of the name means district or region. Approximately 150 ancient monuments are registered, including several Stone Age settlements. The majority are, however, grave mounds from the late Iron Age and are located in seven grave-fields. One such example is the grave-field at Wij, which consists of 43 graves. Abundant discoveries of low technology iron slag bear witness to the long tradition of iron production in the area.
