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 houses, the Swedish National Heritage Board's contract archaeology division, UV Öst, has performed a preliminary investigation of the site UV 4:1, Grebo parish, Åtvidaberg municipality. In connection with this, the site UV 4:2 has also been delimited. Several archaeological sites in the area were known from earlier surveys. Because of an expansion of the planned development area, another preliminary investigation was made in Melskog 1:1, where a settlement was discovered. A charcoal production pit, dated to 1290-1410 AD, was excavated within UV 4:1. This whole area has constituted an iron production site, but since the site to a high level is damaged by modern earthworks, no further excavation is suggested. At the edge of UV 4:2, an area with graves disturbed by ploughing, trenches were dug to delimit the site to the south and west. The site has not been excavated. The remains within Melskog 1:1 consist of leached features as well as distinct hearths and cultural layers. Among the find
