Abstract [en]

In April and May 2022, Uppsala University, Campus Gotland conducted seminar excavations at Västergarn, 25 kilometers southwest of Visby. Five trenches and two trial trenches were investigated covering an area of 208 sqm. At Snauvalds 1:2 four early medieval house structures have been exposed out of which two had been excavated. According to 14C the the two houses investigated date between c. 1040-1180/1230s. House 11 c. 4.5x7 meters is a one-room cabin with an oven places in the south-west corner. The building shows evidence of various crafts, including blacksmithing, textiles and the production of beads. House 12, a post two room cabin, c. 5x8 meters also with a hearth was probably used as a residence. The open space between house 11 and 11 was interpreted as a yard with evidence of processing cat furs and other activities. The purpose of the investigation at Hamngården 1:2 was to locate the harbor area of medieval Västergarn west of Klintehamnvägen. A geomagnetic survey conducted on the property in 2022 indicated anomalies in the beach meadow. For this purpose, a search trench was opened in an east-west direction between Klintehamnvägen and Västergarnsån. Coin and pottery finds indicate activities between 16th and 18th centuries. The find material has probably a connection with Hamngården, the residence of the port bailiff mentioned in the hictorical sources.

Abstract [en]

In April and May 2021, Uppsala University Campus Gotland performed an archaeological investigation at Västergarn, 25 kilometres southwest of Visby, as part of an advanced field course in archaeology. Two trenches were investigated, covering an area of 90 m2. The purpose was to reinvestigate post-holes, remains of a wooden floor and a water hole unearthed in 2013. Further to understand how these remains relate to a number of Late Viking Age artefacts discovered in the same area. As a result it could be established that the wooden floor belongs to a medieval house foundation with corner-hearth and a partly preserved stone-lined sill. The foundation is mainly dated by shards of Baltic ware to the period 1100/1125-1230. Find concentrations of iron tools adjacent to the hearth, iron armory plates and glass beads may indicate a small workshop. The Viking Age artefacts relate to a separate post-hole building probably dated to the 11th century. The date and the function of the water hole remain inconclusive. The large amount of animal bones deposited in the stone paved water hole, among them a high proportion of horse bones indicates a function as a well for grazing cattle in the area during the dry season. A coin-like copper pendant with pseudo-Islamic glyphs found adjacent to the water hole underlines Viking Age activity in the area. The results show that the house remains in the area investigated probably belong to the outer precinct of the harbour settlement in Västergarn. This particular area within the Västergarn rampart was settled presumably between AD 1000/1050-1200/1230. Findings such as cultural layers, strengthens indications of a complex and active settlement in the late Viking and early medieval period.

Abstract [sv]

Husgrunderna från Buttle Änge visar, förutom sin skilda storlek, upp en olikartad karaktär vad gäller konstruktion, kulturlagrens djup och delvis fyndmaterial. Vidare arkeologiska undersökningar och analyser behövs för att klarlägga husens tidshorisont, funktion och relation till varandra. Är de skilda husen samtidiga eller förligger det kronologiska och/eller funktionella skillnader? Forskningsprojektet syftar även till att ge en ökad förståelse av de kronologiska och kontextuella relationerna mellan bildstensplats och gårdsmiljö genom seklerna både vid Buttle Änge och generellt via jämförande studier av andra bildstensplatser och stengrundsmiljöer.

Abstract [en]

In the preface to his and Gerda Boëthius' book on Gotland's Iron Age settlement sites, John Nihlén described the stone wall house sites and 'adjoining field walls' as Sweden's Pompeii. The description vividly illustrate how Nihlén perceived the preservation status of the stone wall houses. Nihlén seems to have thought that the stone wall houses had been covered by a 'protecting layer of volcanic dust' and laid untouched since the day they had been abandoned. Even though most of Nihlén's theories on the Iron Age settlement sites of Gotland has since been dismissed, the 'Pompeii idea' has seemingly been passed on to later generations of researchers (as for instance in the work of Carlsson 1979 and Cassel 1998). This conception is however far from accurate. Field inventories on Central and Eastern Gotland, as well as cartographical studies and the result of the excavations at Änge, Buttle parish has clearly demonstrated how the stone wall house sites has been damaged and affected by cultivation and other activities during Early Modern and Modern times. To further investigate and document the impact and extent of destructive elements on stone wall house sites, special attention was given to the topic during the 2017 excavation campaign at Änge. The survey was divided into three different sections; 1. Excavation and analysis of the construction and chronology for so called 'field walls' or ancient enclosures [sw. stensträngar]; 2.To evaluate the hypothesis that 'impediments' (marked objects in fields) on historical maps represent ancient remains, particularly stone wall houses; and finally 3. to define the spacial extent of the Iron Age settlement site, to be able to conclude which of the historical features that can be labelled as 'destructive elements'. The fieldwork section of the project was carried out within the borders of the research projects Climate Change and Social Competition: re-approaching the Archaeology of Gotland AD 300-900 and Houses and Hierarchies: From Roman to Viking influences on Gotland Island in the Baltic sea, and conducted in July and August of 2017 in conjunction with Uppsala university campus Gotland's summer-semester fieldwork-course for archaeology students. The excavation documentation and the preliminary results of the survey is presented in this report.

Abstract [sv]

De arkeologiska undersökningarna vid gården Änge i Buttle socken, Gotland, år 2014 ingick i utbildningen för arkeologistudenter (totalt ca 93 st) vid Institutionen för arkeologi och antik historia, Uppsala universitet, och genomfördes inom ramen för kurserna Fältkurs i arkeologi I (5AR133) och Arkeologisk fältkurs (5AR212), perioderna 2014-04-28--2014-06-05 och 201407-28--2014-08-29.    Årets undersökning ska ses som en direkt fortsättning av de tidigare arkeologiska utgrävningarna vid platsen åren 2009 och 2013 (se Andreeff 2012, Andreeff, Melander & Bakunic Fridén 2014, Andreeff & Potter 2014). Fältstudier av bildstensplatsen vid Buttle Änge inleddes år 2009 som en del av Alexander Andreeffs avhandlingsprojekt Stones and People: Viking Age Picture Stones from the Island of Gotland vid Institutionen för historiska studier, Göteborgs universitet. Resultat och tolkning utifrån undersökningarna vid Buttle Änge och den avslutade utgrävningen vid bildstensplatsen Fröjel Stenstugu (Andreeff 2012; Andreeff & Bakunic Fridén 2014, Andreeff, Melander & Bakunic Fridén 2014, Andreeff & Potter 2014) utgör en mycket viktig del av avhandlingens forskningsmaterial (Andreeff under publicering). Fältsäsongen 2013 genomfördes inom ramen för sommarkursen Arkeologisk fältkurs och Fältkurs i arkeologi II under hösten för Uppsala universitet. Undersökningarna fortsatte då vid bildstensplatsen och därtill påbörjades utgrävningar av tre icke tidigare fornminnesregistrerade anläggningar i området. Årets undersökning ingår i det nu initierade projektet Bildstensplatser och stengrundshus: Järnålder i det gotländska inlandet.     Kulturlandskapet kring Buttle Änge visar på en lång kontinuitet med lämningar efter bosättning, åkerbruk, metallhantverk, gravar och rituellt liv från romersk järnålder till och med historisk tid. Undersökningarna tidigare år var främst inriktade på området kring bildstensplatsen och odlingsrösen. Fältsäsongen 2014 fokuserade på fyra teman tillika områden vid Buttle Änge; depositioner och aktiviteter vid bildstenarna, spåren av metallhantering norr om stensättningen, om en del av odlingsrösena egentligen utgör fornlämningar, samt att undersöka bebyggelse och aktiviteter i och kring stengrundshusen i änget.  

Abstract [en]

This report includes field documentation and the results from the 2014 excavations and analysis of findings from Nygårds 1:28, Buttle parish on the farm Buttle Änge, Gotland, Sweden. The excavations held in 2014 at Änge, Buttle parish, were a continuation of surveys from 2009 and 2013 (see Andreeff, Melander & Bakunic Fridén 2014). The campaign was included in the research project Stones and People: Viking Age Picture Stones from the Island of Gotland, as well as part of field courses in archaeology held by Uppsala University. Excavations were led by Alexander Andreeff, assisted by Joakim Kjellberg, Victor Niels Love Melander, Jhonny Thérus, Paul Wallin, Kjel Knutsson and Gustaf Svedjemo all of whom are from Uppsala University.     Excavations were divided into three main areas. The first area concerned the remains of metal production as well as the remains of cremation graves close to the picture stones Raä Buttle 42:1 and 42:2. The second area focused on two cultivation cairns, close to an ancient road and a gravel pit from the 20th century. The third area concerned an Iron Age settlement site with stone house foundations and a stone wall. Trenches 5, 20 and 21 were located in the first area, trenches 10 and 11 in the second and trenches 13-19 in the settlement site.     In total an area of 446 m² was excavated including 12 trenches, 3 test pits, 54 features and 3129 registered find-posts.
