We will never be able to excavate everything – nor should we – but it would be good to know howto make the best use of what is visible in the landscape to write social prehistories. In this projectthe author creates a set of parameters for the 1000 mound-cemeteries seen north of Lake M¨alarenand clusters them by period, using 51 examples that have been excavated and dated. The resultis that 1000 cemeteries can now be allocated to period, with that special kind of confidence inwhich statisticians rejoice.
