Last in line
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 found this [...]

Now up at Neuroanthropology

We’re close to the finishing line
The Skepplanda 32 excavation is beginning to come to an end – only two days left. We’ve made a lot of interesting finds during the excavation and these last few days we also found some hearts and cocking pits whereof some might be Neolithic. Several of them looks like they’re from the Iron Age but [...]

The archaeologist who went up a church ruin but came down a cairn.
Revisiting past pastures My father use to hunt Elk, when I was a child the hunting grounds where in Roshult (Röshult), Habo parish, Vastergotland. This is some miles west north west from Jonkoping, where I grow up. My father and some hunters used to take a caravan and live out there for a few nights during [...]

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 [...]

IARNSTORB
Yesterday I visited Jarstorp (Järstorp) church just outside Jonkoping to take a picture of a small runic inscription on one of the foundation stones at the NW corner of the ship on the outside. The church is not medieval but it stands on a medieval base.   The inscription is IARNSTORB (SM 119 M) which is the place [...]

Magnus in action
It’s not often I publish pictures of myself here at Testimony of the spade but I got these pictures of me in the field taken by fellow archaeologist Joel Berglund and I thought it might be a good idea to give evidence that I actually do some work as well as blogging. Here I am behind [...]

Skepplanda day 9
 Today dark clouds covered the sky and the rain have been falling more or less the whole day, most of the time in form of a drizzle. Now this does not stop an archaeologist in the field all that happens is that you get dirty. Among other things I found this nice double edged flint scrape. I [...]

A theme song for a Stone Age excavation
Day 8 at the Skepplanda 32 excavation dealt a mixed hand; a bit of rain, a good deal of sun and some wind to top it off. It all started with horses though, two had escaped and was finding our excavation site a nice enough place (sorry no photos).   Obviously not all that glimmer in the [...]

Through the eye of the Geodimeter
  The excavation continues, though a lot of nice flints and some ceramics we’ve still haven’t found any traces of the settlement itself, no postholes, no cocking pits and no hearths. Well we’ve found one hearth but it’s probably Iron Age and not Stone Age though a C14 analysis will settle that at a later date. [...]
