Is Gamla Uppsala the Burial Mound of Apollo?

Gamla Uppsala is an area rich in archaeological remains: seen from the grave field whose largermounds (left part) are close to the royal mounds. The building beyond the mounds is the church and to its right is the low Ting-mound and then the museum.
The equivalent of Apollo in Nordic mythology is Freyr.  He is the son of Zeus who is the Nordic Odin.  I am now moving into Nordic mythology and its analysis and have much to reveal through the writings of the Poetic Edda and Heimskringla.
The burial mound was used by the Amazons of old (see Diodorus Siculus’ Library of History) and was adopted by some of the ancient Greek (and all mythology) Gods and Goddesses all though some of these ancient people chose cremation (Zeus and Heracles chose cremation).
Now please remember (for those new to my work), that my Mythological Unification Theory has unlocked the secret of these ancient people from Crete and Tyre through the death of the Father God’s son to show how these people are equivalent through out world mythology and including Abrahamic religion.  I’ve also proven that they traveled and I will link an article regarding current DNA tests that are beginning to back up my theory.
It appears that the ancient Apollo-Freyr God took up residence here and may be buried here as well.  I will post a story about his death in a later post.  For now, let’s look at this passage from Wikipedia to get started:
Gamla Uppsala (“Old Uppsala”) is a parish and a village outside Uppsala in Sweden. It had 16,231 inhabitants in 1991.

As early as the 3rd century AD and the 4th century AD and onwards, it was an important religious, economic and political centre.[1] Early written sources show[clarification needed] that already during pre-history, Gamla Uppsala was well known in Northern Europe as the residence of the Swedish kings of the legendaryYngling dynasty.[2] In fact, the oldest Scandinavian sources, such as Ynglingatal, theWestrogothic law and the Gutasaga talk of the king of Sweden as the “King at Uppsala”.[3]

Medieval Scandinavians held Gamla Uppsala as one of the oldest and most important locations in Scandinavia. The Danish chronicler Saxo Grammaticus held Odin himself to have resided in Gamla Uppsala far back in the mists of time:

At this time there was one Odin, who was credited over all Europe with the honour, which was false, of godhead, but used more continually to sojourn at Uppsala; and in this spot, either from the sloth of the inhabitants or from its own pleasantness, he vouchsafed to dwell with somewhat especial constancy.[10]
This tradition was also known by the Icelandic historian Snorri Sturluson, who, however had Odin reside in nearby Fornsigtuna, whereas the god Freyr lived in Gamla Uppsala.[11] Freyr is also said to have founded two of the central institutions of Iron Age Sweden, the Uppsala öd and the Temple at Uppsala:

Frey took the kingdom after Njord, and was called drot by the Swedes, and they paid taxes to him. He was, like his father, fortunate in friends and in good seasons. Frey built a great temple at Uppsala, made it his chief seat, and gave it all his taxes, his land, and goods. Then began the Upsal domains, which have remained ever since.[11]
