I’ve filed the Sättuna excavation report with the State Board of National Antiquities, the County Archaeologist’s office and the County Museum. And I’ve put it on-line at archive.org. Check it out if you’re into the Late Mesolithic! We didn’t get much data on the 6th century elite settlement.

    Does the map have a legend or scale? I’m afraid it doesn’t tell me anything at the moment.

    The map above might as well be modern art. A comprehensible version with legend and scale are in the report, whose main text is written in English.

    Hum … both interesting and a bit disappointing, as you were really digging at a presumably hot spot right north of the big mound. However, the dating of the site’s “heyday” to the late 6th century seems convincing. Would you also date the place-name Saetuna to that period?

    I believe the main reason we didn’t find much from the 6th century was that we weren’t allowed to dig near the centre of the metal detector scatter.
