GIS-material for the archaeological project: Borgmästaregatan street and others

Creator/Principal investigator(s)

Swedish National Heritage Board, UV Öst

Description

The information in the abstract is translated from the archaeological report:
The preliminary investigation was performed as an archaeological inspection, due to rebuilding of the sewer system on the streets around the Banken block, located at the medieval centre of the city of Linköping. Five small trenches and a larger one were excavated along Borgmästaregatan street. The larger trench in the south part of the street was excavated in an area of great interest and of great importance to the medieval city, since it includes, among other things, the Saint Lars graveyard, the boundaries of several building lots and an earlier discovered alley. The relation between these features is of great importance to understand and analyse the establishment and development of the earliest stages of the city. Unfortunately, it turned out that the trenches were excavated in mostly disturbed layers. Only small parts of undisturbed cultural layers could be documented in the south part, but these were far too fragmentary to be able to contribute to the area's history.
