GIS-material for the archaeological project: Settlement remains by the burial ground in Sund

SND-ID: SND 2059

Creator/Principal investigator(s)

Swedish National Heritage Board, UV Öst


The information in the abstract is translated from the archaeological report:
Due to construction of an electric main system within the properties Sund 1:3 and 4:16, Fivelstad parish, Motala municipality, the Swedish National Heritage Board's contract archaeology division, UV Öst, performed a preliminary investigation/an antiquarian inspection along the cable trench. Approx. 30 m from the trench is a burial ground, RAÄ 7. No new graves were found around the burial ground, but c. 100 m to the north-west two hearths and a post hole were discovered, probably being part of a settlement. The hearths were of typical early Iron Age character and thus fit into the burial ground context. The remains probably extend in a north-south direction, and UV Öst considers it safe for the cable to be laid as planned, except for in the area where the remains were found.


The information in the purpose is translated from the archaeological report:
The purpose of the antiquarian inspection was to elucidate whether any archaeological remains were going to be affected by the trenching.
