The information in the abstract is translated from the archaeological report:
In connection with local planning concerning an extension of the golf course in Herstadberg and Loddby, Norrköping municipality wished to elucidate the archaeological conditions in the area. A archaeological assessment (phase 1) has been performed by the Swedish National Heritage Board's Contract Archaeology Service, UV Öst. The assessment has shown that the development will affect an area of regional, cultural interest, as well as the oldest locations of the manor Herstadberg and the village Loddby, a brickworks remnant, three building remnants, a historically interesting building, five prehistoric graves and six topographically delimited areas which are likely to contain unmarked archaeological remains. A expansion of the golf course would affect Loddby to a higher degree than Herstadberg, since the latter is already much affected by the residential area, the railway and the motorway.
