Yet another Monday at Skepplanda

Monday mornings are often grey, so was this one. It started witha grey sky and heavy clouds that kept pouring rain on us but as the day progressed so did the weather. During the worst part of the rain we took a quick pause and went to Lodose museum to see their exhibit on the coastline curves on […]

Skepplanda day 9

Skepplanda Rock Art

As I returned to Skepplanda this afternoon I saw a road sign just outside of Skepplanda saying; Rock carvings (Skepplanda 20:1).  So I stopped the car and took a quick walk – the pathfinder sign is due for replacement though. The rock carving was set at big rock wall at Stugåsberget, in my eyes it’s […]

In 2006 an archaeological investigation was carried out to determine the settlement size. At this time several search trenches were dug and 10 flints were found which were […]

Now a short period indoors; writing a report on the mentioned field work, making preps for the next fieldwork, writing a […]

Tomorrow is the last day at Skepplanda 32 and most of the work will concern dismantling the excavation site, packing and finishing up. Today we finished one of the larger hearths at Skepplanda 32, it was ca 4 m in diameter and ca 0,5 m deep. We didn’t find many artefacts in it but I […]

Several of them looks like they’re from the Iron Age but […]
