There are a lot of challenges inherent in bringing any part of a past culture into the modern world. Things as intangible as religious and spiritual beliefs are especially challenging because while historians and archaeologists can dig up some information about a culture, much of what they find is limited and very open to interpretation.

Much of what is “known” about the temple at Uppsala is almost exclusively based on the writings of Adam of Bremen, a Christian chronicler who wrote about the cultic activity at Uppsala without ever having seen Uppsala. Aside from the fact that he likely embellished details related to him by people who had seen Uppsala, the fact that he was closely tied to the Christian church renders him at least moderately unreliable, though certainly not entirely unreliable.
