Lars Lundqvist promptly answered my call for archaeopix. Here’s a recently discovered 1st Millennium BC stone setting on wooded outland belonging to the hamlet of Åby, Misterhult parish, Småland, Sweden.
The stone pavement, which is not scheduled for any excavation, is a grave superstructure, most likely covering scanty pyre remains similar to those found in Gothenburg Nasties. Such structures are very much ho-hum-yawn to disillusioned cynics like Lars and myself, but the man to the left was really happy to see it. Said this merry Gothenburg biologist: De ä ju änna fantasstisskt att sånna hera ännu finns kvår! “Unbelievable that things like these are still around!”
Update 28 February: Regular Dear Reader Karen at Voyages of the H.M.S. Swiftsure has a nice photo spread from a lithics dig on a river bank in western Canada that she worked on in the 90s. You can tell there are many fond memories there!
