So, apparently, if the documents contemporary to the event do not suit you Carch you dismiss them. Apparently, the Gesta Hammaburgensis Ecclesiae Pontificum and its description of Scandinavia in the 11th century, "Descriptio Insularis Aquilonis" is to be dismissed entirely on the basis of your expertise and the unnamed "many". Were you wary of quoting Wiki? The question really revolves around the critical use of source materials, and the issue here did not revolve around archaeological disputes but instead, the time frame for Christianity, which you conveniently chose to place later rather than sooner.

Well, since I actually know some of the archeologists and historians in Sweden that work with issues about the process of Christianization (as Claes Theliander, Martin Rundqvist and others) and about the tales of Gamla Uppsala written by old Adam (already critizised and evaluated by the Weibull brothers in their time and later discussed among others by Henrik Janson and archeologically researched by Ann Sofie Graeslund and others) I at least have some insight in the research in this field.

In Sweden the Christianization is a rather drawn out process and nothing that was achived in the blink of an eye.

And also the old notion that Gamla Uppsala should be a center of cult for the whole of Sweden is strongly contested today. Many also point to the fact that one has not found any evidence at all that there really was a pre Christian Temple at Gamla Uppsala.

Are you referencing the Till fragan om Svearikets Vagga when you mention Janson?
 
As a suggestion, rather than adding future nebulous comments on so-and-so, or throwing names about willy-nilly, appeal to higher authority thusly:
 
 
The forum is set up to explore avenues and analyze competent assumptions so as to expand discussion. For every tit there is a tat and the aura of "settled" on the basis of recent novelty is hardly inspiring.
 
Next time beware unless you are ready to present authority correctly:
 
 
Some organization does promote the furtherance of the topic and the promotion of scholarly debate.

Noone denies that there is a debate about this and related topics. But still there is a rather critical attitude against the narrative of Adam. Those archaeologists that work with this issue questions such an atyphical Temple that Adam mentions. And of course no archaeological traces of such a thing has been found.
 
Janson discusses Adams narrative as a symbolic narrative of the precense of competing Christian phalanges in and around Uppsala. He also discusses the lines of conflict in Europe around 1075. He also discuss the contradiction in Adams view of Uppsala and its surroundings and the testimony of the many runestones that have been in the same neighbourhood.
 
He does not zoom into the rather tired debate about Svearikets vagga.

I can't really think of much, but our old churches looks kind of typical for our old architecture.
 And this kind of house is also traditional:

Another couple of old log houses in Sweden:
 
 
The fire house at the Zorn farm in Mora, Dalarna from around the 1240. A firehouse was used to prepare products like butter and similar::
 
 
 
Even older is a little house for keeping the tax, collected from the people of the parish, to the Church, in Ingaboda, province of Smaaland, from 1229. It is a log house where the logs are covered by shake:

If one visits the island of Gotland in the Baltic sea one can see some interesting examples of local architectural styles and ornaments. Among others one can see houses with roofs made of saw sedge. Here is one example from the Bottarve farm.

I have an old renaissance style house, which I am trying to add some of the original exterior corbels to. I was hoping someone on this forum might have pictures of the style of corbels around the windows and window arches. I will carve the pieces myself. Thanks

Carcharadon:
I've been giving some thought on how best to reply to you post, and I think you're referring to local traditional architecture, as opposed to imported styles, I can respond as follows:
 
  • Australian Aborigines who occupied this country for between 60,000 years and possibly 130,000years, had no culture which included building, nor did they need it as they were nomadic hunter/gatherers. The dwelling consisted of very crude bark open sided "lean tos".
  • White settlement occurred first in 1788 and with it brought the notion of copying building with which they were familiar-English Victorian style buildings built from stone. They were followed by Edwardian and Georgian style buildings.
  • Buildings, particularly houses in the country and also made from stone usually featured a verandah to provide shade from the hot summer sun. This extended to timber built houses owned by the less affluent.
  • In the Australian state of Queensland, because of the sub-tropical climate, temperatures of 40 degrees Celcious and sometimes more in Summer, a style developed and is known as The Queenslander. Built of stilts to promote air flow, and featuring wide verandahs, this style is common in Queensland.

It's only in the modern era->1950's, that we have started to develop architecture which, while not quintessentially Australia, moves away from the English formats.
