Description

The information in the abstract is translated from the archaeological report:
At the field evaluation of RAÄ 9 traces of settlement were found at two locations. The southern area contained several features. The macro fossil analysis indicated that these were from the Neolithic and Iron Age, which was also supported by a radiocarbon dating to the Late Neolithic and the Roman Iron Age. The northern area did however appear to be of a late/modern character. The field evaluation of RAÄ 49 found coherent settlement traces at two sites. One site consisted of a limited cultural layer and a few features in form of hearths. This settlement has been 14C-dated to the Pre-Roman Iron Age. The settlement's extent in the investigation area is severely limited, and it can be assumed that it continues to the east, outside the investigation area. The second site consisted of featues in form of hearths and post holes. Remains of a presumed three-aisled building from the Late Vendel - early Viking period were found. Radiocarbon dating shows that settlement activities occurred at the site at different periods: Lat

The second site consisted of featues in form of hearths and post holes. Remains of a presumed three-aisled building from the Late Vendel - early Viking period were found. Radiocarbon dating shows that settlement activities occurred at the site at different periods: Late Mesolithic, Middle Neolithic, Late Neolithic, Roman Iron Age and the early Vendel Period - late Viking period.

Purpose:

The information in the purpose is translated from the archaeological report:
The National Road 32 between Mjölby and Motala is to be widened and to get a partially new route and a new name (National Road 50). At Lövingsborg, within the property Sunnanå 2:6, just south of Skänninge town, the widening will run over the archaeological sites RAÄ 9 and RAÄ 49 in Skänninge parish. For this reason Arkeologikonsult undertook two archaeological field evaluations of the respective site according to the County Administrative Board of Östergötland´s decision during spring 2009.
