The well in the settlement : A functional or an economic and social thing. (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to discuss and clarify the interpretative potential of wells in order to understand the relationships between different features on the settlement. The empirical data used for this thesis have been confined to two different settlements locations in Uppland in Sweden, where a total of eight well’s structures have been analysed in relation to nearby archaeological and ecological features. This was made possible by analysing how the arrangements of wells were related to nearby places and archaeological remains and by using GIS (Geographic information system). The material is analysed using the theoretical approach of “entanglement”. Entanglement is a concept that can be used to facilitate the understanding of how many and how different cohesive relationships between material and humans and vice versa are interconnected. During the work with the thesis, the spatial relations of wells to and between other things have been clarified. The environment around the wells locations presents interesting contexts between archaeological remains and the locations. Ancient people used places and things in the natural setting in order to organize their social life. The well as a functional thing and as a special place should be understood in relation to the human's way of action, that is, there is a coherent relationship between the two that together affect both the human world and the wells.
