Description

The information in the abstract is translated from the archaeological report:
The Swedish National Heritage Board's contract archaeology division, UV Öst, has performed a preliminary investigation during autumn 2005 and a subsequent final excavation during summer 2006 in Kimstad, within the property Ask 5:1, Norrköping municipality. The municipality was planning to build a new train station that would affect the prehistoric settlement site RAÄ 258. The excavations covered the remains of a neolithic house and a few other features. Two samples of charcoal have been dated to the Late Mesolithic, c. 4300 BC. A third sample was dated to the Early Neolithic, c. 3700 BC. About 3 kg of early neolithic pottery was collected. A polished axe of diabase supports this dating, which seems to bee the earliest phase of the settlement. The house was supported by one row of posts and included remains of hearths, pits and a larger storage pit.
