Martin Rundkvist - Umeå University, Department of historical, philosophical and religious Studies

Description:

Investigations in 2015 in different parts of the archaeological site at Stensö Castle, Östra Husby parish, Östergötland, identified the western section of the castle's ringwall as well as a number of heaps of material which was extracted from the ruins for reuse. A rune carving was discovered on the outside of the southern tower, with the inscribed name 'Helge' - possibly a builder, worker, or the tower's architect. The excavations yielded rich finds of medieval ceramic, for the most part Early Red glazed ware (ca. 1250-1350 C.E.).

Purpose:

The aim of the archaeological investigations at Stensö Castle was to build upon the results from the 2014 excavation season at Stensö Castle.
