Description:

The information in the abstract is translated from the archaeological report:
During August 2003, the County Museum of Östergötland performed an archaeological assessment (phase 1) in the Källhem area, by request of Linköping municipality and due to planned house construction work. Two areas (Object 1 and 2), that were likely to contain archaeological remains, were identified. During phase 2 of the assessment, search trenches were dug within these areas. Within Object 1, one sole post hole was discovered. Within Object 2,162 settlement features such as pits, post holes, hearths and cultural layers were discovered, as well as stray finds consisting of flint, quartz, burnt bones and slag. Features were found all over the area of Object 2 and the settlement is likely to continue to the north-west, outside this area. The County Museum of Östergötland suggests that a field evaluation is performed before this area is developed. There are also two known ancient monuments within Object 2, RAÄ 122 and 46. The area containing these monuments will not be developed and has thus not been surveyed (in phase
