Description

The information in the abstract is translated from the archaeological report:
During 2003-2004, with complementary work in 2005, the Swedish National Heritage Board's Contract Archaeology Service, UV Öst, performed several field evaluations and an excavation by Trädgårdstorp, within parts of the Värö 3:1 and Ryd 1:1 properties, in Kärna parish, Linköping municipality, Östergötland County. The reason for the evaluations was a planned recycling centre within Värö 3:1 and a new shooting range within Ryd 1:1. The evaluations covered a connected area with ancient monuments, registered as RAÄ 126-128. Within two areas (1 and 2), Mesolithic settlement remains, as well as a settlement from the Late Neolithic - Bronze Age containing a well preserved house dated to c. 2000-1500 BC, were excavated. The total extent of the site is yet unknown and future development in the adjacent area is thus likely to involve further archaeological investigations.

Purpose:

The information in the purpose is translated from the archaeological report:
The purpose of the field evaluations was to establish the character, dating, extent and scientific potential of the previously discovered archaeological site, within the area of planned development. The result was to form the basis of future decisions made by the County Administrative Board, regarding the archaeological remnants, and to serve as guidance for the developer's costing of further excavations.
The purpose of the excavation was to document and remove the archaeological remains within the area to be developed, with a starting point in the scientific questions formulated within the project.
