Skamby 2005 Boat Grave Report On-Line


Readers of my blogging over the past 14 months will have come across many references to, and tidbits from, the work with the archive report for 2005’s Viking Period boat grave excavation at Skamby in Östergötland. Howard Williams and myself directed the excavations of the first boat inhumation in that county and the third Pre-Roman Iron Age bronze casting site identified in all of Scandinavia.

I am very happy to announce that the report is now complete, on-line and available for free in English with lots of pics! Get it here, tell me what you think, ask me if anything is hard to understand.

It took less than a year and a half from the close of the dig to an on-line report. Not too bad!
