Description

Late Neolithic in Fänsåker

Purpose:

The aim of this archaeological study was to determine the prevalence and nature of a previously encountered ancient monument at Fänsåker. Initially this was done in order to create a basis for assessment of the ancient monument’s information value and the costs that a thorough investigation would entail. This latter investigation aimed to determine the dating and relationships of the various relics, and to try to clarify what type of activities the site had been used for.
