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.

  1. 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.


  2. 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?


  3. 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.

    For my ideas about Tuna chronology, see a forthcoming blog post.
