Description:

The information in the abstract is translated from the archaeological report:
Due to new construction and rebuilding of road 50 between Motala and Mjölby, a field evaluation has been carried out of the ancient monument RAÄ 14, on the property Högby 5:12, Mjölby municipality. The evaluation was performed by Societas Archaeologica Upsaliensis (SAU) in May 2009, at the request of the Swedish Road Administration. The burial ground, consisting of 34 cremation graves and 14 inhumation graves, was dated to the Roman Iron Age on the basis of artefacts found. In the east and south-east part of the burial ground, stone constructions, interpreted as two stone settings, were discovered. The features have not been excavated but merely documented above ground, since they were located outside the roadworks area. The burial ground has thus been delimited in all directions.
