Description

The information in the abstract is translated from the archaeological report:
During 2005 a preliminary investigation and a subsequent final excavation were performed on the archaeological sites RAÄ 1, 15 and 133 within the property Skälstad 1:2, Kvillinge parish in Norrköping. In the north-east part of the excavation area three rune stones are situated, of which one might stand in its original location. No features or finds were discovered nearby the rune stones, because the ground was very disturbed by cables and trenches. Earlier surveys have shown that the settlement site RAÄ 113 and the burial ground RAÄ 15 date to two separate time periods, namely the Early Iron Age and the Vendel era (Late Germanic Iron Age), and that the burial ground has to distinct main datings - the early and the late Vendel era. The excavation showed that one of the graves could be as old as from the late Migration period. The youngest dating from the burial ground was Viking age. No activities older than the settlement site, that is Early Iron Age, have been discovered. Probably the settlement site was turned into
