Description

The information in the abstract is translated from the archaeological report:
In may 2009, SAU carried out a field evaluation of settlement remains RAÄ 89 in Högby parish, Mjölby municipality, Östergötland county, due to planned re-building of road 50 between Mjölby and Motala. The investigation area covered approximately 13 000 m2 on both sides of the existing road. Initially, the area was subject to a field survey during which worked quartz and porphyry was found in the central and northern part. Trenches covering approximately 800 m2 were dug, and 61 features were found (post- and stake holes, pits and hearths), of which 16 were excavated. A small cultural layer was found in the south-westernmost trench. The remains are mainly dated to the Early Neolithic and Early Iron Age.

Purpose:

The information in the purpose is translated from the archaeological report:
The purpose of the field evaluation was to define the character, dating, expansion, composition and complexity of the archaeological remains, and to delimit the remains north- and southwards.
