GIS-material for the archaeological project: Agricultural remains and Stone Age settlement in Södra Freberga

Creator/Principal investigator(s):

Swedish National Heritage Board, UV Öst

Description:

The information in the abstract is translated from the archaeological report:
Due to planned construction of a double track railway and flyovers between Motala and Norrsten, a new location for an existing rich fen and a new walk and cycle path, a 900 m2 big area was excavated in Södra Freberga. 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.

Purpose:

The information in the purpose is translated from the archaeological report:
The purpose of the excavation was to document and determine the character of the agricultural layers within area 1 (RAÄ 93) before removing them. The purpose of the field evaluations was to determine the extent, type and dating of the ancient monuments within area 2, located
