Description

The information in the abstract is translated from the archeological report:
Kulturmiljövård Mälardalen (KM) was commissioned by the County administrative board of Östergötland to conduct a supplementary field evaluation of the ancient monument Högby 87:1, a burial ground from the Early Iron Age. The monument is located within the property Högby 5:12, in Högby parish, Mjölby municipality. The evaluation was prompted by the planned widening of road 32 between Mjölby and Skänninge. The western part of the burial ground was investigated in 1992 when road 32 was built. Prior to the current reconstruction of the road, there was a goal to leave the remaining eastern part of burial ground intact and that a protected zone was to be established around the remains during the construction work. In a field assessment that KM performed during the summer of 2009, it turned out, however, that the burial ground had a significantly greater extent than previously known. In the trenches around the burial ground's protection zone there were found parts of stone settings in six of the trenches. A supplementary fie
