Description

The information in the abstract is translated from the archaeological report:

A field evaluation north of the railway track was performed in 1999, revealing agricultural layers and a microblade. This led to the excavation of area 1 (RAÄ 93), where agricultural layers were documented, and to a field evaluation of area 2, where it was verified that the planned development was not going to affect the archaeological remains. A third area south of the railway track was also evaluated. Here a Stone Age settlement was discovered.
