Landsjö Castle 2015 Fieldwork Report

Myself, Ethan Aines and Mats G. Eriksson are proud to present our report on last year’s fieldwork at Landsjö Castle, Kimstad parish, Östergötland. Lots of goodies there! Construction on the castle seems to have begun between 1250 and 1275, and the site was abandoned halfway through an extension project some 50-75 years later. We also found a Middle Neolithic fishing site and an Early Modern smallholding among the ruins.

  1. Nice. It’s going to take me some time to properly appreciate it all.

    Unless my eyes are deceiving me, on page 12 I count 16 people, but only 15 names. What am I missing?

  2. Thank you for pointing that out! Ethan and I have missed Mari Karlsson (long red t-shirt, glasses) in the figure caption, though she is on the staff list on page 11 as she should.
