GIS-material for the archaeological project: A long-standing settlement in Veta

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 new residential area, the Swedish National Heritage Board's contract archaeology division, UV Öst, performed a final excavation within the property Veta 5:5, Veta parish, Mantorp, Mjölby municipality, Östergötland County. A survey and preliminary investigation were conducted in 2004, discovering extensive settlement remains. The development area was approximately 50 000 m2 big, and the final excavation in 2005 covered about 8700 m2 of it. Three settlement areas were excavated. Within area A, a longhouse from the late Roman Iron Age was found, as well as areas with hearths and pits. The house was unusually complete, compared to the houses normally found in Östergötland. Both the roof-supporting post holes and the post holes of the walls had been preserved. Within area B at least four houses were found; a longhouse and at least two more diffuse buildings from the the Roman Iron Age, and a neolithic longhouse. Nearby this house, just beside the ancient stream bed that crosses the area, 2
