GIS-material for the archaeological project: Gällstad-Himna, Linghem

Creator/Principal investigator(s):

Description:

The information in the abstract is translated from the archaeological report:
Linköping municipality is working on a local plan for a ca. 250 000 m2 big area west and north-west of Manstorp, Linghem, Törnevalla parish. Due to this the Swedish National Heritage Board's contract archaeology division, UV Öst, has performed a stage 2 survey, followed by a preliminary investigation.During the survey, archaeological remains were discovered in two places; just south of the burial ground RAÄ 32 and in the west part of the survey area. No remains were found in the rest of the area, but concentrations of fire cracked stones in the topsoil, as well as darker areas on the ground surface, indicate settlements destroyed by ploughing. The hollow way consisted of several layers and was bowl-shaped. It has probably been used as a foot- and bridle path. No artefacts were found.
At the preliminary investigation the topsoil was removed by the discovered remains. Only a few more features were found. All features were documented, excavated and removed. The remains represent activities carried out by the burial gro
