Description:

The ZIP file contains three Shape files with information on trenches and features, and a map in GeoTIFF format. The excavation covered the northern part of a late Iron Age cemetery. 28 graves were found on the investigated area, seven of which were probable inhumations. High phosphate levels were surveyed in a field beside the cemetery, but no traces of prehistoric activity were found. Settlement remains in the shape of hearths and fire-cracked stones were however found underneath the graves.

The excavation uncovered 40 Iron Age graves, most of which were stone settings. Few artefacts were found. The burial custom and artefacts date the cemetery to the Early Iron Age and Migaration Period. Underneath the cemetery, two areas of settlement remains were uncovered. The features included hearths, post holes and two burnt mounds. The settlement was mainly dated to the Early Iron

The excavation was carried out in August and September 1979 and covered part of a cemetery with ten previously known graves. Four stone settings, of which two four-sided, and a hearth were excavated. The burial type, burial custom and the fact that few grave goods were deposited indicate a dating to the Early Iron Age.

Description:

The ZIP file contains three Shape files with information on trenches and features, and a map in GeoTIFF format.
The excavation was carried out in August 1980 and covered a site with a stone setting, a hearth found ca. 15 m from the grave, and a presumed stone setting that turned out to be a natural formation. The location of the grave and the burial custom indicate an Early Iron Age dating of the stone setting.
