From Kalmar with love

Then this year filed season has started. A few days in Västervik – a few search trenches and a couple of excavated cultivation cairns – not much but a nice start in the sunshine. Now a short period indoors; writing a report on the mentioned field work, making preps for the next fieldwork, writing a few offers on couple of other jobs and so fourth. Lot’s of things to do, and lots of new stuff to learn as I’m new at Kalmar County Museum; all institutions have their way and praxis’s – but the best way to learn is to bite the bullet and on head right on.

As new things starts up old things catches up – one of the things I worked on last year was a report for Arkeologicentrum on the excavation of a pitted ware site (en gropkeramisk boplats ca 3200-2300 BC) some miles north of Gothenburg in Göta Älvdal called Skepplanda 32:1. The titel is Forntiden på Kattleberg belyst genom arkeologisk undersökning av två förhistoriska boplatser, Skepplanda 32 och 230, Västergötland, Ale kommun, Västra Götalands län and it is written by Lisbeth Bengtsson, Britta Wennstedt Edvinger and myself. Now it’s available in Swedish as a pdf.

That’s all for now
