Description:

The information in the abstract is translated from the archaeological report:
Following the new construction of National Road 32/50 between Mjölby and Motala, Stiftelsen Kulturmiljövård Mälardalen (KM) performed an excavation outside Fågelsta in Motala. The excavation included a settlement which, after a field evaluation, was dated to the Early Neolithic and to the Bronze Age - Early Iron Age. The total investigation area covered about 60000 square meters of which 2300 square meters were excavated. A total of 128 archaeological objects was documented of which 105 consisted of features and layers. Two possible building remains were documented, of which one was the remains after a hut and the other a remain after a three-aisled house. Radiocarbon datings indicate two distinct periods of activity on the site, one during the Early Neolithic and the other at the transition between Late Bronze Age and Early Iron Age.
