Description:

The information in the abstract is translated from the archaeological report:
Due to construction of a new walk and bicycle path between Brånnestad and Rambodal, the Swedish National Heritage Board's Contract Archaeology Service, UV Öst, performed an excavation in the "Skålsvampen" city block in Smedby, formerly in S:t Johannes parish, in the city of Norrköping, Östergötland county. A previous field evaluation had noted prehistoric settlement remains along the planned trail. The excavation was performed in April and May 2003. Parts of the cultural layers, as thick as 1.2 m, discovered during the evaluation, were excavated. Several chronological layers were observed as well as stone packings and pits within the cultural layers. The layers have been built up both deliberately in connection with construction work and through manuring. The finds mainly consisted of burnt and unburnt bone and a few pottery shards. Two pits and a stone packing were dated to the Late Vendel Period/Early Viking Age.
In addition, approx. ten settlement features were excavated, such as pits, hearths and post holes. One
