GIS-material for the archaeological project: Preliminary investigation at Landstorp, West Stenby parish, Östergötland

Creator/Principal investigator(s):

Arkeologikonsult

Description:

The information in the abstract is translated from the archaeological report:
The investigation at Landstorp (property Nyckelby 3:9) was made on the grounds that the area of the ancient monument RAÄ 246 needs to be considered for the planned rebuilding and new construction of National Road 32/50 between Motala and Mjölby. Directly adjacent to RAÄ 246, previous excavations found remains from the Neolithic to late historical times. In the previous investigations two grooves and a row of post holes were found, and interpreted as hut floors and two-aisled houses from the Neolithic. No more clear structures could be found among the other features. The results of the now completed field evaluation are very similar. Several pole-and stakes holes as well as pits, probably settlement related, were found. The most obvious remnants were two horseshoe-shaped grooves, one which was 14C-dated to 2460-2190 BC (2 sigma). Another dating pointed to the Neolithic (3700-3250 BC, 2 sigma). Similar sites with Neolithic grooves are known from the inland of Östergötland, but the number is few at present.
