Previous Archaeological Excavations along the 'Ostlänken' Railway Corridor 1965-2012: Archaeological excavations in Björnviken 2:1

Creator/Principal investigator(s):

Swedish National Heritage Board, UV Öst

Description:

An archaeological investigation was performed in Björnviken 2:1, Kvillinge parish, Östergötland on June 4-5 in 1991 due to the planned exit from road E4 (Stockholm - Norrköping) to road 55 (Uppsala - Norrköping).

Björnviken 2:1 is situated approximately one kilometre west of Bråviken and situated north of RAÄ 109 (Högarnas gamla tomt) and RAÄ 7 (a burial site). On a map from 1697 an old road from Stockholm to Norrköping is marked within the area. After clearing the road several iron objects were found, for example horse shoe fragments.

The investigation confirms the previous assumption of an old road located in the field at Björnviken 2:1 (area 18).
