Description

The information in the abstract is translated from the archaeological report:
Stiftelsen Kulturmiljövård Mälardalen (KM) performed a field evaluation of the ancient monuments RAÄ 59 and RAÄ 60 in Fivelstad parish, Motala municipality, Östergötland during the period of April-May 2009. The investigation area consisted of a 700 meter long and 40-50 meters wide area along the eastern side of the railroad, south of Fågelsta. Previous archaeological surveys preceding the expansion of the railway have found several cultural and cultivation layers, settlement areas and scattered features in connection to this area, with datings ranging from the Early Neolithic to the Roman Iron Age. The results from the field evaluation show that these areas continue to the east. Finds of a Neolithic stone ax, pottery of Bronze Age/Early Iron Age character and three features that were radiocarbon dated to the Pre-Roman and Early Roman Iron Age indicate that the activities mainly belong to the same periods that the previously dated remains in the area. The results primarily show cultivation and settlement-related activ
