Description

The information in the abstract is translated from the archaeological report:
In a cooperation between Tekniska Verken i Linköping AB and Mjölby - Svartådalen Energi AB, a new district heating conduit will be constructed between Linköping and Mjölby. The route mostly follows close to the older E4 between the two cities but in some places the line turns away from the road, such as for example in Sjögestad. In connection to the route several prehistoric sites are known. During the archaeological assessment (Phase 1) conducted in December 1999, new visible but unregistered ancient monuments were found at several locations, as well as 22 sites with potential archaeological remains requiring further investigation (Larsson 2000). During parts of the period from May to September 2000 the National Heritage Board UV East conducted an archaeological assessment (phase 2), of the 22 potential sites previously found. Seven field evaluations of the registered ancient monuments were also performed.
